20% of low-income youth struggle with mental health challenges and 80% of these youth do not receive services they need. Help us reach these kids in need today! Doc Wayne (www.docwayne.org) is a non-profit that connects with high-risk youth through sports, utilizing our sports-based therapeutic curriculum, do the good®. Our mission is to fuse sport and therapy to heal and strengthen youth, as well as assist them to make positive choices and becoming responsible contributing members of society. Doc Wayne inspires and engages youth caught in cycles of trauma, poverty, and violence to pursue their positive paths in life. Doc Wayne’s trained coaching staff delivers the curriculum that has been adapted from common therapeutic techniques. We have a waitlist of 100+ kids for our Chalk Talk sport-based group therapy program. Each group occurs weekly and is designed to assist participants in addressing concerns of self-esteem, self-concept, anxiety, aggression, anger management, social awareness, and overall effective emotion management. In order to serve these kids, we must have trained clinicians and coaches in place. This fundraiser will help staff our groups and support our sport-based therapeutic programming.
