Why does DTP exist?
Developing Today's Potential (DTP) was created to address challenges within certain communities by providing opportunities to build and strengthen usable skill-sets through fun and engaging programs.
The University of Southern California conducted a study on the psychological effects of skateboarding (Beyond The Board Findings From the Field), and found that skateboarding helps improve mental health, fosters a community, and encourages diversity and resilience.
As lifelong skateboarders, we at The DTP Foundation have witnessed firsthand these psychological effects and the benefits they provide. We believe that with the proper guidance anyone can experience the benefits of skateboarding and apply any lessons learned to other areas of life, just as we have done.
With these beliefs in mind, we create programs centered around using skateboarding as a tool to attract new members to our organization and get them involved in our other programs focused on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.
