It grew out of a core group of elite athletes who wanted to do more than just play basketball. Many of the East Bay United players have played in college and even professionally in the Philippines, Greece, Mexico, and Germany. In returning here to the Bay Area, players realized that our community needs more than sports heroes; it needs coaches, mentors, tutors and professionals who can show the way to younger players and their friends as they find their way in life. Many of us earned athletic and academic scholarships to attend some of the best universities in the country, but we never forgot where we came from.
What began as conversations between younger and older players has now grown into a rich array of programs that serve boys, girls and adults in the greater Bay Area. We rely on volunteers to fuel our programs. Volunteerism is one of the foundations of EBU. Our volunteers assist the organization in raising funds, in promoting the organization, and in running our social service programs as well as the activities we organize for the causes we support: educational excellence, and the prevention of diabetes, obesity and violence.
