NBA Star Russell Westbrook Helps Launch New Tech Program For At-Risk Youth

– Written By @DanielleBTV

Investing in our youth is vital to our future, and it’s been great to see many athletes doing just that.

NBA superstar Russell Westbrook’s ‘Why Not? Foundation’ has joined huge initiatives aimed at getting at-risk, inner-city youth off the streets and into the classroom. Westbrook has teamed up with the LA Conservation Corps and philanthropist Chad Brownstein, to launch the ‘Westbrook/Brownstein Green Tech Program In L.A.,’ according to PEOPLE.

The Houston Rockets star says the program will train students for future careers in coding, computer literacy, and computer engineering. The program will also reportedly include an advanced drone piloting career path program.

Westbrook told the publication, “I feel like this particular program actually impacts the kids’ futures, impacts their mind, the mentality of where they grew up, where they’re from,” He added, “I definitely can relate to that because I feel like I was one of those kids growing up in the city of Los Angeles and finding my way, figuring out what was the best path for me.”
