Doc Wayne is a Boston based, award-winning charity that uses sport and therapy to strengthen at-risk young people.
Their flagship ‘Chalk Talk’ programme engages young people through the power of sport, supporting them as they progress and persevere through adversity.
The majority of Doc Wayne’s students are young people of colour and come from low-income households. Many have been exposed to or are survivors of abuse, community violence, and chronic trauma.
Their $10,000 grant will contribute to the operating costs of Doc Wayne, enabling them to strengthen their capacity to support more students through the Chalk Talk programme.
