It is the goal of the Darius Turner Foundation (DTF) to actively seek out at risk-youth and provide them with the skills and knowledge necessary to live productive lives. We will focus specifically on utilizing sports to teach the importance and relevance of teamwork, discipline/work ethic, perseverance, goal setting and humility/respect realizing that the on-field lessons carry over into everyday life.
