Launched in 2014 in partnership with the NBA and USAID, Live, Learn & Play (LLP) is a youth development program dedicated to training coaches, developing sports infrastructure and using basketball to encourage citizenship among Senegalese youth. We currently work with more than 40 schools and youth basketball clubs in Dakar and Thies, and serve more than 8,000 students, boys and girls.
All coaches are trained in a comprehensive basketball / life skills curriculum that was co-developed by the NBA and SEED. Students receive weekly after-school basketball programming and life skills lessons that use the basketball court as a teaching tool to promote positive values among youth.
Weekly programming includes:
Life skills lessons
Three annual coaching clinics
