Building Bridges at the Arena

Jan 16, 2018 | News + Updates | 0 comments

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.
