Sensei Dave has a true passion to help Mentors, Caring Adults and Parents make a deeper and more profound impact in youth’s lives. Dave grew up as a product of a broken family, in and out of foster care and youth correction facilities only to lose his ONLY family; his mother when he was only 13 years old. But, thanks to two Caring Adults and their level of involvement in his life, he was able to turn his life around and end up impacting 1000’s of at-risk youth, Parents and Mentors.
