UPB Youth Charitable Foundation
Bianca and Packie Turner launched Unlimited Potential Basketball Youth Charitable Foundation in the fall of 2020 to address persistent opportunity gaps facing youth in sports. The main goal of the organization is to ensure young girls and underprivileged children are given a safe space to learn and grow through sports. In 2016 Bianca and Packie began to organize basketball clinics for underserved youth in California and this new foundation will continue their work. Mental skills training is incorporated to provide youth with the tools needed to unlock their full potential. UPB Youth Charitable Foundation focuses on building safe and supportive environments where young children can learn the value of hard work, positive leadership, getting outside of their comfort zone, and confidence.
