Our Sports Development Adventure Expedition (SDX) has been developed in partnership with Camps International to create a unique opportunity for volunteers to get hands-on experience of coaching and developing others through sport in less fortunate, rural communities and schools in Africa.
SDX gives students the chance to directly contribute their efforts, inspiration and all the benefits of their own education under the umbrella of sport whilst experiencing some truly amazing cultural trips and safari. Funding can also be applied for to support expedition fees through BU Global Horizons . This can significantly reduce the cost of the expedition if you meet the funding criteria.
Initial funding deadline is March 15th 2019th – email Barry Squires for more information.
Participation in SDX is recognised as part of the Global Citizen badge of the Global Talent Programme and allows you to gain credit towards your Global Talent Award. Find out more here www.bournemouth.ac.uk/student/global-talent
