East Stroudsburg University alumna Domineque Scott went to South Africa to work with the nonprofit group United Through Sport in an effort to change the lives of disadvantaged children there — what she found changed her life.
Scott, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2008 and a master’s degree in 2009, both in sport management, had been coaching field hockey at a private college when she decided she needed to look for new horizons.
“I wanted to go abroad, I wanted to make an impact and I wanted to give back to those who need it,” she said.
Scott discovered United Through Sport, which works with underprivileged children in countries such as South Africa, Ghana, Thailand, St. Lucia and Argentina. The group recruits volunteer coaches to travel for 5-12 weeks to work with students from middle school through high school in athletics, life skills and some academics. A four-year field hockey player at ESU, she signed on to spend 12 weeks in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, starting in January 2014. Scott, is currently the Executive Director of United Through Sport, USA.
