US coach

For student-athletes from American universities taking part for the first time

Traditionally, American and Vietnamese university students team up to teach together in camp.  Due to Covid restrictions, which prevented Americans from traveling in person to Vietnam, Coach for College modified its program for Summer 2021. 

The new program model was a big success, with stellar feedback from both the university students and kids who took part.  Most cited the new friendships formed as one of the aspects they valued most, and the consensus was that the program was both fun and meaningful.

Conditions for international travel are evolving.  Proposals have been put forth to fully open to foreign visitors in spring 2022, dependent on successfully vaccinating the majority of the population. 

Coach for College is monitoring the situation, and has yet to determine whether in-person participation by US student-athletes will be possible in 2022, or whether we will implement again the highly successful service at a distance model of 2021.

Vietnamese coach

For Vietnamese university students taking part for the first time

You will be as much a teacher and a mentor, but we call you "coach" for simplicity.  Each coach, along with their American and Vietnamese teammates, co-teaches one academic subject and one sport to all the children, and mentors one team of children more closely in life skills.  In addition to teaching, you will serve an important role, interpreting between the Americans and children.

Applications for Summer 2021 are now open.
