Youth involved with Doc Wayne’s Global Life Empowerment (GLE) program (http://www.docwayne.org/what-we-do/GLE), funded by the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, continue to “Fill the Tank” of others. Youth at the Key Program, Inc. delivered words of encouragement, thank you letters and hand-knitted items to members of the military stationed at Hanscom Air Force Base. This is just one in a series of kind acts done by Doc Wayne youth that are truly inspirational. Check out the pictures!

Doc Wayne Launches Global Life Empowerment Program

Doc Wayne recently launched its Global Life Empowerment (GLE) program with the support of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s After-School and Out-of-School Time (ASOST-Q) Grant Program. The purpose of this state-funded grant program is to enhance after-school and out-of-school time programs and services to improve the academic, physical, social, and emotional wellness of public and non-public school-age youth during the school year and the summer months.

Doc Wayne’s Global Life Empowerment (GLE) program enhancement, made possible through the ASOST-Q grant, helps Doc Wayne participants stretch to a new level of competence and readiness in skills essential to their educational, clinical, vocational, and social functioning. The GLE component will further assist Doc Wayne youth in embedding our do the good curriculum in their lives by involving them in active management and shaping of the program. The GLE seeks to (1) empower youth by giving them a voice, (2) provide additional out of the classroom writing and alternative self-expression opportunities and (3) teach self-regulation, social skills, and help youth learn to advocate for themselves, their needs, and desires in appropriate ways. The participants work cooperatively as a team, guided by their coach, to produce an e-Journal sharing their responses to suggested changes, lessons learned, and group leadership activities experienced.

We are happy to report that the first Forum meeting was a great success with one youth sharing, “this was a great new way to connect with my team off the court” and another adding, “it was good to be apart of something positive with others.”

In addition to feedback from program participants, their coaches and mentors, Doc Wayne has been equipped with the APT-O (Assessment of Afterschool Program Practices Tool-Observation), APT-Q (Assessment of Afterschool Program Practices Tool-Questionnaire), and SAYO (Survey of Afterschool Youth Outcomes) to document the impact of the ASOST-Q grant on our youth served, educational facilities, and communities.
