HOUSTON — In an effort to share its love for the local community, University of Houston volleyball student-athletes spent a day with Generation One, a local trans-denominational ministry located in the Third Ward of Houston last week.

The day entailed the Cougars spending time with the local children, assisting them with studies, reading books, playing games and coloring. 

Every volleyball student-athlete was able to assist in some way and represent themselves in the community that supports them on and off the court.

“Generation One provides an amazing opportunity for kids in the Third Ward, and we are so thrilled to work with them and act as positive role models,” said Director of Cougar Pride Leadership Academy Sasha Blake. “The volleyball student-athletes had a terrific time, and I know they received as much out of being there as the kids did. We will extend the relationship and continue to partner with Generation One.” 

ABOUT GENERATION ONE
Generation One is committed to making sure that the next generation "Knows What Their Potential Is and Believes That They Can Achieve It!" To ensure this becomes a reality, we have set up an after school tutoring program as well as a mentoring program. We also use sports teams, counseling, professional tutoring, Bible studies, life skills classes and more to reach the next Generation. On the macro level our focus is to improve the overall quality of life for residents in the Third Ward. Our goal is to tear down dilapidated homes and abandoned buildings while rehabilitating existing homes.
