Football Coaching

Football is the national sport in Bolivia, but until recently it was exclusively for boys. Up Close Bolivia supports a local football school i that aims to integrate boys and girls, fostering not only technical expertise but also key values around team work, gender equity and communication.

Volunteers with specific football coaching skills also provide support to the municipal football schools in the city centre which serve children from across the city, providing them more technical skills and enabling them to participate in city wide and national competitions.
