CULTURE AND SPORT

The cultural volunteer program with sports in Colombia is one of the best ways to provide children and young people with healthy and fun activities. These activities serve various purposes such as physical and mental well-being, teaching discipline and order, and allowing the children and young people to develop the spirit of competence in an orderly and healthy manner.

Sports and cultural activities are complemented with attention to health, formation of values and discipline.

The following children are benefiting from the cultural volunteer program with sports in Colombia:

  • 140 children and young people in the Soccer school
  • 40 children and young people participating in athletics
  • 155 children practicing dance
  • 45 children playing baseball
  • 10 children dedicating themselves to swimming
  • 40 children interested in music

The main objective of the cultural volunteer program with sports in Colombia is to keep children and young people active and away from gangs, and at the same time to make good use of their free time.

 

YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

The lack of opportunities means that many young people are linked to crime. Therefore, it is necessary to offer them options that relate to music, sports or cultural activities.

As a volunteer, you are expected to participate in the formation and training of children and young people in the following cultural and sports activities:

  • Football
  • Athletics
  • Baseball
  • Dancing
  • Swimming
  • Music
