About the program: The One Team Programme of EA7 Emporio Armani Milan is developed with Comunita Nuova and is dedicated to adults from the Centro Diurno Azimuth. The Centro Diurno Azimuth works with drug users who intend to pursue a new path in life. It accommodates up to 16 people, of both sexes, signposting alternative life choices to help them avoid prison. It offers the space and tools to re-evaluate their experience as drug users and change their lifestyle through inclusive sessions focusing on well-being and the promotion and development of resources and personal relationships. The path consists of an individualised therapeutic program that is mainly based on using the group as an educational tool, as a source of developing self-knowledge and knowledge of others, active participation, relationships and change.

Olimpia Milano, thanks to One Team Program, organizes ten training sessions (2 hours each) in Olimpia’s gym, run by a coach and the ambassador, with the aim of using basketball as a tool to develop and promote positive behaviors and relationships within the group.

The trainings cover all the year, starting from October until May.
