Become an international volunteer
All over the world it is important to push the agenda of getting access to sport and community life, also when you have special needs and disabilities.
In Specialsport.dk it is easy: As we share our knowledge with trainers, clubs and municipalities all over Denmark – we off course do the same thing with the rest of the world.
One friday a month is dedicated to Specialsport International and anyone from every where in the world can join and learn how to make more specialsport locally, no matter where ‘local’ is.
Do you want to join too? Sign up right here.
How to volunteer
You can become a volunteer in two ways:
You can be a volunteer, that are driving your own project locally.
You can talk to us and we will support you with knowledge whenever you need it – and also the trainer / club that you get engaged in.
You can get an education and follow our program for becoming a volunteer-specialsport-representative in your area, to guide families and create more specialsport.
- participate in 4-6 online sessions
- develop your first specialsport-team locally
- learn about disabilities and barriers for sport
No matter the way you choose to volunteer, you will receive the needed materials for your work, but there will never be any kind of direct money transfer.
The goal of volunteering are solely to create access to specialsport for children with special needs and disabilities, also in your community.
