Online and In-person Training Program Empowers Next Generation to Be Job-ready
SAN ANTONIO (Aug. 22, 2022) – The San Antonio Spurs today announced a new official partnership with Indeed, a leading global hiring platform. Through the partnership, Indeed will develop and implement a training program that empowers the next generation to be job search ready.

This milestone marks Indeed’s first partnership of this kind with an NBA team.

We look forward to walking in step with them to build leaders and legacies in our communities.”
