Sports Training Program
YASD uses sports to impact the lives of youths from slum/informal communities ,were exposed to drug abuse, poverty,gangs and all other social ills .The sports programmes is beyond kicking a ball or shooting hoops ,its a program centred on involving young people to come up together and highlight specific causes of concern in their community which they discuss and proffer solutions to these issues. Each community YASD works in has its own unique challenges which range from teen pregnancy, HIV/AIDS and drug abuse.
The program takes a “we are in this together approach” as the coaches within the program are young people who train others, the coaches identified from those who have shown commitment and have exhibited leadership skills . This ensures that skills are transferred to another young person and in the absence of the coach they can easily oversee the training sessions.
