Doc Wayne is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that connects with youth through sports, utilizing a sports-based therapeutic curriculum called do the good ® (DtG). Our mission at Doc Wayne is to fuse sports and therapy to heal and strengthen youth facing a range of challenging life circumstances. We recognize that growing numbers of difficult childhood experiences among our youth make providing a friendly therapeutic outlet invaluable. We work hard to understand youth behaviors as normative danger responses to their previous chaotic environments and to provide youth with a safe, pro-social experience facilitated by trained coaches and clinicians with whom to form new caring and trusted attachments.
The program is inspired by South African leader Nelson Mandela’s thought, that "Sport has the power to change the world, the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else can."
