It takes a village to raise a Child’ comes to mind when describing Douglas’ approach to youth development. Growing up with a single mom and being the eldest of six kids instilled a strong understanding of this truth. Douglas knew from a young age that he wanted to help those in need and become a strength that others could depend upon. He has been a mentor, coach, sensei, and friend to countless young people over the last two decades. His truest passion lies in helping others overcome what they perceive to be their greatest obstacles in life.
Douglas has been a part of the Park Slope community since 2015, when he started at Brooklyn Boulders. There he led the Climbing and Fitness programming and was also a coach for the climbing team for that location. He developed strong relationships, not only with the individuals on the team but also with the parents. The balance he maintained with expectations and personal growth was expressed time and time again from the parents and other coaches. Since his time at BKB he has stayed in contact with several of the young people, and their parents, following along with their progress and lending support when asked. What you get with him is not only a Center Director but also someone that you can have as a resource to help achieve the development of your young one. His commitment to serving the community will be something that is demonstrated through his actions, more than just words. Living so close to the Center, you will probably see him walking to work on any given day, so do not hesitate to say hi and ask him anything that is on your mind!
Being a father himself, he fully comprehends the importance of having his child surrounded by positive and inspiring people. He is ever mindful of the fact that without such a support system in place, the world would be that much tougher. Douglas brings to us that same heart, passion, and focus for fostering a similar environment for our “little ones.” He is both humbled and honored to become a part of the Village that helps raise your child.
