About the program:
Cedevita Olimpija Ljubljana and Youth Care Centre Malci Belic Ljubljana successfully collaborated for the team's One Team program in the 2020-21 season, and now they have joined forces again to replicate something similar for this current campaign. Malci Belic Ljubljana is a Slovenian non-profit center that educates children and youngsters with emotional and behavioral problems, as well as those with learning disabilities. Cedevita strongly believes that the alliance will see its One Team project go to the next level and provide a safe space for children as they look to overcome their difficulties. The program includes eight weekly sessions and involves four to 12 people aged between seven and 13. The goal is to help young people with certain disabilities equip themselves for everyday life by using the sport of basketball to emphasize social skills, such as motivation, reliability and personal responsibility. NLB d.d. is the project’s main commercial partner and it will get involved in the sessions, in addition to other related activities.
