Over ten plus years ago I began a quest to give something back to each community. As I looked around for a place to begin, I saw a tremendous need in the children in each community for mentors, role models, and a desire to achieve in life. I founded The Darby Foundation to address these needs and we started programs in many communities such as: Career Exploration Days at Centennial Ave Elementary School in Roosevelt, Hempstead Middle School and Uniondale High; Keynote speaking engagements at Roosevelt High School and other venues; Golf Clinics in the Parks; and the Moments of History Tour at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn.
