One fateful day, I took the initiative to find a local high school girls soccer team looking for volunteers and found a man named JT Dorsey coaching girls they called Rebels. It's been 6 years and that phone call turned into a blessing that allows me to coach the Harrisburg Rec program with 3 yr olds who constantly make us laugh as they learn the basics, to leading a group of young ladies called future leaders into more opportunities of success. If you can donate to this organization, you give me and the JTDF staff more chances to give more children a day to smile, laugh, learn, and grow on and off the field. Thank you.

The JT Dorsey Foundation had a productive beginning. The children seemed to thoroughly enjoy their time with JT Dorsey and the other volunteers, which seems to be the most important aspect of this program for these children.

I loved working with the JT Dorsey Foundation. JT is so enthusiastic and passionate about his mission that it rubs off on everyone that is involved. We were able to see a tangible change in our kids throughout the summer. It was one of the best experiences of my life. We may have had an impact on the kids, but it could be no where near as great of an impact that they had on us.

I am associated with a small, primarily latin soccer club based in Philadelphia. The JT Dorsey Foundation has become an effective resource and partner in delivering training, exposure and soccer equipment to the children I work for. The sincerity of the JT Dorsey Foundation founder and its mission set a strong baseline of confidence that have facilitated this partnership. Recently I was included as a chaperone for a group of boys and girls on a trip to Washington DC. The trip was a great oppurtunity to bridge relationships between a diverse group of children using soccer as the common factor. I am very proud to have been able to accompany and interact with all of the participants. Keep up the good work!!

The first day of the program seemed to be a success. A good amount of children showed up. They all excitedly participated in all of the activities prepared for them. Each one of them seemed to have an exceptionally good time. They were all excited to get the opportunity to run around and touch the soccer ball a little bit.

The JT Dorsey Foundation is very professional. I was involved in planning a training for teachers at an alternative ed. High School. The plans were always made to meet the needs of the organization that was sponsoring the training. In depth training was made available for teachers, TA's, administrators, counselors and special ed personnel. The client was always kept foremost in the planning.

The JT Dorsey Foundation has been an asset to the community by introducing the children to soccer. The JT Dorsey Foundation is not only concerned with teaching children a new sport but it also has a mentoring aspect to the program where older children in the program will mentor the younger ones.
