PREPARING OUR YOUTH OF TODAY
to become LEADERS OF TOMORROW
From July 22nd to July 24th, ROSS Leaders and So Elite Basketball Training teamed up with Los Angeles Lakers' Wenyen Gabriel to present the first ever Wenyen Gabriel Youth Basketball Camp in Juba, South Sudan. Leaders from both organizations spent almost two weeks in Juba expanding our missions of bridging the gap between the local South Sudanese community and the diaspora. During this time our team met with community leaders, visited refugee camps, and fully immersed ourselves into Juba's culture. Click the button below to read more about our adventures.
