African Football Youth Academy Development

Art in Tanzania is developing youth football assisting talent development of a Football Academy jointly with its partners. Football is the national sport in Tanzania. There is an enormous potential for young talented girls and boys to be developed. Due to lacking capacities, it is hard to produce professional football players. This program is a joint effort with our partners as Briessfull Stars Organization of retired top Tanzanian football professionals and 7Elity Academy from Utah USA having branches also in the UK and South Africa and connected to top world football clubs. We look for interns and volunteers to join and assist in coaching, ball, and physical training activities. Also, to advocate for young players about good nutrition, hygiene, and other public health issues. Participants can also assist in the village and school sports activities.
