We have the speaker for you!
Hoops on Mission founder Dwyane Jackson speaks with authenticity, freshness, fearlessness, empathy, balance, and awareness.
His story and message are memorable.
Dwayne grew up in a single-parent household in the urban area of Fort Myers, Fla., and both of his parents we in and out of prison. He faced abuse, violence, and bullying.
He had many obstacles. But he gave his life a mission. He poured himself into basketball. He got a scholarship to go to college.
After two of his cousins were murdered in Fort Myers, he started Hoops on Mission. He now lives to make a positive difference in the lives of the area’s youths.
At school assemblies, he hands out shirts and basketballs. But students leave with much more: A positive, hopeful outlook for their lives.
