About the Program:

Valencia Basket developed its One Team program alongside Proyecto Vivir with the support of LaFundacion LaCaixa, which collaborates with hundreds of organizations and thousands of volunteers who work together to fight poverty and exclusion. The project also joins forces with Conselleria de Educacion Comunidad Valenciana, the governmental education department of Valencia, which most importantly aims to bring equal opportunities to public school classrooms. A group of 16 participants (8 girls and 8 boys, aged 13-17) work on a weekly basis, focusing on determination, perseverance, sacrifice, desire to excel, passion, discipline, learning how to win and lose with the help of basketball. Ten sessions of 90 minutes each are held every Thursday in Valencia’s Alqueria del Basket practice facility.
