The Duckworth Project, Inc. is a vision of Robert Duckworth, an accomplished comedian and motivational speaker, who felt
a persuasive call to serve youth in great need of direction in their lives. In 2007, Robert and his wife, Asara,
put the wheels in motion to develop a non-profit organization that would meet these very needs.
Robert's extensive past experience of working as a consultant with another non-profit organization allowed him to
see the many difficulties facing today's youth. Feeling blessed as a successful entertainer and entrepreneur, Robert
understood it was time to give back to this population of youth who are greatly impacted by negative influences each day.
Thus, the Duckworth Project was born!
Our initial program offering includes life skills education for youth in schools, alternative educational settings, youth
organizations, churches, and juvenile correctional facilities. One of the philosophies of the Duckworth Project
is that ALL youth and families of today are at risk! Although we diligently seek to support those in underprivileged
environments as an immediate priority, our programming is available to all youth in our communities.
