This is a youth soccer club, here in Huanchaco beach, Peru, for boys aged 7 to 16. The main goal of the club is to develop and place young talents on the U15 Peruvian National Team. The players are selected for their talent to form an elite team. The long-term plan of this club is to help develop the players so that they can play at the highest professional and national levels. As well as focusing on technical development, we place great emphasis on inculcating them with positive values.
We believe that being a good person is as important as being a good soccer player and that these skills can help them overcome the situations that they are often presented with. This is one of the major reasons why we are seeking volunteers. By creating a positive environment, our players thrive. The success of this approach can be seen by the fact that the majority of our first generation players (1998/99) are now playing at both the national and international levels.

The academy is located in Huanchaco, a beautiful and rustic seaside town where you can sit back and relax, surf beautiful waves, immerse yourself in the Peruvian culture, and fish on the beaches.

Help:

You will stay in the hostel in return for the work. The hostel is ten meters from the beach!
In terms of the help we are looking for, there is a variety of work to be done.
First, we are looking for those capable of coaching the players and helping out with their daily training. However, if you do not feel comfortable coaching football at this level, we are also looking for help in the hostel.

Work profile Coach:
Volunteer coaches for the weekly futbol program with the local schools. Help organize tournaments. Helping young kids under 10 years old get into futbol. You will have the opportunity to play pickup futbol matches with the locals every evening.

Work profile Hostelhelper:
The FC is based in our community hostel. We are looking for helpers willing to take part in cooking, cleaning, reception and computer tasks. We are also looking for creative people to jazz up the place.

* If you have a background in psychology we could also use your help with our athletes!

As most of our guests will tell you, this place is much more a home than a hostel and all the guests normally join us in helping cook and prepare a communal meal. Usually the costs of the meals are split between all and everyone can feel free to cook for the family.

We look for volunteers to commit to a minimum of 2 weeks before joining as a coach.

Email us to find out more information about the Academy and how the volunteer process works.

Accommodation:

We affiliate with a rustic beachfront hostal. Volunteers will be placed in a 4 person dorm room. The hostel is located in a beautiful spot on the beach (at the beginning of Huanchaco, one of the surf point) and the town has a great atmosphere.

We want to facilitate exchanges of culture, futbol, and travel here at the club and hostel. Our volunteers interact with the kids at the club. It is incredible when these kids hear stories from around the world. Come join us, kick a futbol, surf, learn, and have a great time.
