Olimpiadas Especiales Honduras (OEH) belongs to the international network of Special Olympics International. OEH is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 dedicated to providing sports training and athletic competition throughout the year in a variety of sports of Olympic style, to children, youth and adults that have an intellectual and/or physical disability such as Down Syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy. The main aims of OEH are to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities, and that people with disabilities have the opportunity to be useful and productive citizens who are accepted and respected. OEH has had important participation in international games, winning more than 500 awards in all the competitions since its creation. Enthusiasm, the willingness to surpass oneself and the constant training have made it possible that the Honduran athletes stand out nationally and internationally, which, although obtaining a medal or rosette is not OEH’s main objective, gives joy to the athletes and makes them want to exert themselves even more (www.olimpiadasespecialeshn.org). Location: Tegucigalpa

Volunteer tasks: Generally, the volunteer will work from Monday to Friday, agreeing to a full-time schedule with OEH. The main role of the volunteer will be as an assistant to a sports educator, training the athletes in different sports, such as swimming, athletics, basketball, tennis, gymnastics, football, volleyball, and floor hockey, among others.

IMPORTANT: Many tasks that the volunteer will carry out take place outdoors where you can find yourself exposed to the sun for long periods of time. For this reason, it’s important that the volunteer does not have any skin problems or allergies to sun exposure. If the volunteer wants to get involved in water sports, remember to bring swimwear.

Volunteer requirements/Skills:  The volunteer must really like sport, but he/she must not have prior experience in sports. The volunteer must like to be outdoors.

Volunteer’s working time: Mostly from Monday to Friday. Working hours are between 20 and 40 hours a week.

Host situation (board and lodging): Host family
