About the Program:

This season, EA7 Emporio Armani Milan is celebrating the sixth year of its partnership with Laureus Sport For Good Italia, an international movement inspired by Nelson Mandela which has the vision of using the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and hardship. Laureus has been helping children aged from six to 18 around the world since 2005. This includes working with kids from different cultural backgrounds, those at risk of stepping outside of the law or those who live in situations of social, cultural and economic distress, as the ideals of psychological well-being and social inclusion are promoted. This season’s EA7 Emporio Armani Milan program is accommodating approximately 100 children aged 12-13 at the Istituto Comprensivo Arcadia, with four sessions taking place to introduce the One Team program. There’s also an additional group of 20 children which will function as the “One Team Group,” that will focus on life skills on a weekly basis. Along with Laureus’ sport psychologist, the club coaches will introduce a didactical element to enforce the idea of being a team and community.
