"Line Up Live Up is a new United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Trainer Manual prepared by Peer van der Kreeft of HoGent University College Ghent’s Department for Education, Health and Social Work.

It looks to promote sport and physical activity as the means by which to help youth avoid violence, crime and drug use.

The skills training programme provided should ideally be implemented alongside wider community-based initiatives that focus on the development of young people more generally.

The Manual has been developed to assist:

  • Coaches
  • Trainers
  • Youth workers

Other professionals working with young people to deliver sports-based activities for males and females aged between 3 and 18.

It includes ten sessions designed to be run in sports centres, schools (as curricular and/or extra-curricular programmes), and other community settings.

Each requires at least one coach/trainer, while co-facilitators are desired."
