About the program:
Hamburg Towers is participating for the first time with its own One Team program to make a positive impact through basketball on the low-income population of Wilhelmsburg. This district is inhabited by families from different ethnic backgrounds, who are therefore are prone to experience cultural clashes and do not have the financial means to join extracurricular activities. To connect people from diverse cultural backgrounds, promoting acceptance, recognition, respect and offering a way to draw confidence from positive intercultural interactions and character development, the club is offering One Team sessions where the target group of participants aged between 13 and 19 can join the activities led by Hamburg’s One Team coaches.
