The Fashion Week Experience supports HealthJox Foundation’s – “Pursuing Purpose Program”.
According to Mr. Corbett, he takes these opportunities to connect fashion to causes that help to eradicate issues that plague New Yorkers in the 5-boroughs in hopes of making an impact. He adds that this year, he is proud to produce an event to bring awareness to violence within New York City. Aligning his brand with nonprofits such as HealthJox Foundation, Inc. who is set to launch its alternative to prison program in 2023 called “Pursuing Purpose Program”, will allow Mr. Corbett to continue the conversation of crime prevention in the Community as well as creating solutions to an already out of control epidemic. Brooklyn’s own HealthJox Foundation’s Executive Director – Dewry DuRoi Bradford said, “The Pursuing Purpose Program is not your ordinary health & sports program. Youth will be encouraged to discover their purpose in life and then work to cultivate and monetize their skills and creativity. Our concern is the “mental health” of our Community Members. Youth will be taught the value of family, community, love, friendship, health & sports, as well as mental health illness, which is a huge epidemic in our Community. With our trained staff, Youth will learn about mental health solutions, anti-bullying/non-violence tips, basic skills of parenting, and help Youth struggling with everyday life’s challenges. Youth will access our literacy programs that will teach economics, crypto-currency, self-esteem, character development, and technical skills that will increase the quality of people in our neighborhoods. They will also learn about conventional and holistic techniques through our pediatricians, sport coaches, clinical social workers, and other holistic modalities.”
