NASSA Mentoring For Life Programme
NASSA established this mentoring programme in June 2018 to give local young people aged 14-21 the opportunity to learn basketball skills, gain qualifications and benefit from the knowledge and experience of NASSA’s unique seven-strong team of mentor leaders.
Each one of the NASSA Mentor Leaders, who include NASSA Patron, Rt Hon Stephen Timms, MP for East Ham and Team GB basketball international Teddy Okereafor, is fully committed to giving their time voluntarily to the programme and to the young people they will be mentoring.
The NASSA Mentor Leaders have succeeded in a range of fields. They inspire the young people to create their own pathway through life and use the power of basketball to promote qualities such as discipline, respect, timekeeping, self-control, self-esteem and confidence.
