STRETCH RUN ACADEMY
The Stretch Run Academy, thrives on providing opportunities for youth. Unlike any other programs in the DMV, we offer a unique focus on fostering new and exciting avenues for our youth to engage in. This gives us a significant advantage over more traditional youth programs.
What truly sets Stretch Run Academy apart is our diversity in sports that is unfamiliar to most urban youth. Not only do we provide them with valuable skill sets that can be scaled, but we also enhance their interest in education by incorporating STEM and STEAM concepts into their program operations. By creating an association between their learning and the enjoyment of thoroughbred racing, we ignite a passion for knowledge.
At Stretch Run Academy, our students have the incredible opportunity to explore a billion-dollar industry. Through this exploration, they not only learn about math, science, technology, and engineering, but they also get to utilize their natural artistic abilities to channel a lack of interest in education to seeing learning with a new perspective. With hands-on experience in various areas of the thoroughbred industry, such as training, riding, exercising, and grooming, our students not only open doors to promising careers but also pave the way for addressing mental and emotional trauma.

Breaking the Stigma: Empowering Young Black Boys to Thrive!
We are proud to partner with The Future Wellness Foundation to address the emotional impact that young black boys face as they transition from boys to men. Our mission is to break the stigma surrounding young African-American males and provide them with the support they need to succeed.
Imagine a safe space, reminiscent of a barbershop, where these young boys can engage in powerful discussions with men who have walked in their shoes. Through sharing their own stories of emotional trauma and triumph, these mentors will inspire and guide these boys towards healing and growth.
Our conversations will provide a platform for these young boys to express themselves, learn valuable conflict-resolution skills, and begin the journey of healing from the emotional trauma that plagues their communities.
Join us in this transformative movement as we empower young black boys to overcome adversity, embrace their true potential, and become the confident, resilient men they are destined to be!
