Building Bridges at the Arena

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the students who completed the “Building Bridges Through Basketball” program were honored on center court at Little Caesar’s Arena. The program is a partnership with the Pistons, RISE, Detroit Police Athletic League (PAL), SAY Detroit Play Center and the Detroit Police Department. The weekly 2.5-hour sessions for youth ages 12 to 16  featured a combination of on-court basketball programming and hands-on learning developed by RISE. The sessions, which were held at both SAY Play and Chosen Generation Community Center, focused on leadership, conflict resolution, identity and diversity. The tip-off event at SAY Detroit Play Center in October was part of the Pistons’ activities during Jr. NBA Week.
