About the Program:

Paris Basketball is once again pairing up with Fútbol Más this season, a foundation which supports refugees and asylum seekers by using sport as a tool in its development programs. The One Team program set up by Paris Basketball tipped off in late September 2023 and will end in March 2024, with two-hour sessions taking place every month. The mixed-gender group consists of 20-25 participants between the ages of 17 and 25. The club aims to provide a non-judgmental environment for the group of refugees, who are from diverse backgrounds, while encouraging group exchange, empowerment, promoting mutual aid and team spirit and fighting against difficulties, all through the tool of basketball. On top of last season’s program, they try to get local people involved by arranging meetings to ensure the refugees’ full inclusion.
