Warriors help at-risk youth with ‘Generation Thrive’

98

The Golden State Warriors is not just known for being the NBA defending champions but also for having a big heart in contributing for local communities.

Through the efforts of Warriors Community Foundation and Kaiser Permanente, they have built the Generation Thrive, an innovative initiative that lifts up at-risk youth.

In the past weekend, the Golden State official Twitter shared a heartwarming video of Generation Thrive’s main purposes. It will focus on helping youth with their educational equity, college and career readiness, and health and wellness. The Warriors’ current practice facility will be the headquarters of the safe house for unfortunate children.

“We are the Bay Area’s team – Oakland is a part of the fabric our organization and while we are leaving a building, we are not leaving a city,” said Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts. “Because of Kaiser Permanente’s demonstrated commitment to Oakland and other Bay Area communities, we couldn’t think of a better partner to create a lasting impact on the youth and future of this community.”

Truly, the Warriors have been an inspiration to everyone and will continue to dominate not just only in the league but also in reaching out with a helping hand to the community.
