The National Basketball Association (NBA) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) launched ‘Live, Learn and Play,’ a partnership that will include a comprehensive basketball-based youth development program aimed at using the values of the game including leadership, character and teamwork to promote youth development and citizenship in 20 schools in Senegal. ‘Live, Learn and Play’ includes a comprehensive coaching development element with a curriculum designed by the NBA and implemented by the SEED Project. The coaches trained through the program will then implement the basketball curriculum locally. It also includes a mentorship component that will provide the local coaches with a broad support network through the program. The pilot program is designed to be expanded by USAID and the NBA to other countries across the continent.
