Community programs

Building Bridges Through Basketball in Chicago in May 2018

RISE has partnered with professional sports leagues and teams, local youth organizations and other partners to impact communities throughout the country with its leadership and education programming. Programs are designed to empower participants to be leaders in addressing matters of racism and discrimination within their teams and communities. Some of the programs extend beyond athletes and coaches by also engaging police and sheriff’s departments to help build relationships among youth, professional athletes and law enforcement.
