About the program:

Cedevita Olimpija and Youth Care Centre Malči Belič Ljubljana successfully cooperated within One Team in the 2020-21 season, and they have joined forces again to develop a new One Team program for this season. Malči Belič Ljubljana is a Slovenian non-profit centre which educates children and youngsters with emotional and behavioural problems, as well as those with learning disabilities (children with special needs). The club strongly believes that the partnership will lift its One Team project to a higher level and provide a “safe space” for children in order to help them overcome their struggles. The program includes 8 weekly sessions and involves 4 to 12 people, aged 7 to 13 years, helping the young people with certain disabilities to equip themselves through basketball with social skills, needed for active participation in everyday life. Gorenjska Banka is project’s the main commercial partner, getting involved in the sessions and other related activities.
