Hard Grinderz
Diverse Youth Programming (DYP) Project

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower, education and mentor families and youth with hands-on experiences through diverse recreational, educational and fitnesss programming aimed to build character, while encouraging discovery of self and the world around them.

Hard Grinderz (DYP project)is a program that teaches non-traditional sports (archery) to diverse youth and at-risk youth attended title one schools in the Charlotte NC area and surrounding areas. We work with 4th through 12th graders, focusing on the history of the sport, safety, technique, equipment, and physical fitness, specifically core strengthening. The DYP project curriculum uses archery to help the youth learn:

  • Math
  • Science
  • Reading Literacy
  • Concentration
  • Self-Discipline
  • Character Building

The DYP project promotes peace, nonviolent communication and conflict de-escalation. It also improves behavior in the classroom, reducing barriers, improving overall discipline and creating programs for after-school and summer learning loss for students. Progressive youth members have the option to join our Junior Olympic Archery Development (J.O.A.D.) program sponsored by the USA Archery Team.
