Summer in South Boston

4 Aug

Many exciting things are happening at Doc Wayne’s South Boston site, the Joseph M. Tierney Learning Center. In collaboration with the Tierney Learning Center and the Boys and Girls Club of South Boston’s Fun in the Sun camp, youth have continued their progress on their positive paths through Chalk Talk sport-based group therapy this summer.

In celebration of youth success and the one-year anniversary of our partnership, the Tierney Learning Center hosted Doc Wayne Family Night. Families interacted with Doc Wayne coaches while enjoying refreshments, an equipment raffle, and team slide show.
