Generation Thrive Announces Completion of Second Bridging the Bay Cohort

In Partnership With Rocket Lawyer, 16 Non-Profit Leaders Will Graduate With Enhanced Leadership Skills

Generation Thrive has announced the graduation of the second cohort for the Bridging The Bay, Igniting Leaders of Change, presented by Rocket Lawyer, a leadership program for 16 non-profit leaders working to attain educational equity in the Bay Area.

Bridging the Bay, Igniting Leaders of Change, presented by Rocket Lawyer, is for executive leaders at the helm of nonprofits focused on educational equity and successful academic outcomes for Bay Area youth. Throughout the 14-week program, 16 cohort participants—who collectively reach over 2 million Bay Area students—gained essential leadership skills, strengthened sector connections, and built self-care competencies, a necessary component during what has been a challenging time for educators in the Bay Area.

As part of their involvement, Rocket Lawyer is providing free group legal benefits to the 16 Bridging The Bay non-profits, as well as to the 66 Warriors Community Foundation 2022-23 grantees. Additionally, through their ‘Defend Confidently’ program throughout the 2022-23 NBA season, Rocket Lawyer donated $500 per blocked shot, amounting to a $250,000 donation to Generation Thrive.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Warriors Community Foundation to support Generation Thrive and Bridging the Bay, Igniting Leaders of Change,” said Charley Moore, Rocket Lawyer Founder and CEO. “Improving educational outcomes aligns perfectly with our mission to bring justice within reach.”

Generation Thrive’s flagship location in Oakland, which opened in March 2022, has since engaged with over 6,500 Bay Area educators and hosted 2,800 of those educators in-person, totaling over 350 hours of free development sessions. The addition of the San Francisco Generation Thrive location, located in Thrive City, the district surrounding Chase Center, has provided additional opportunities for Bay Area educators and non-profit leaders to use the free space for access to professional development and health and wellbeing resources.
