the founder

DUNTA ROBINSON IS A 10 YEAR, FORMER PLAYER OF THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. ROBINSON WAS A PREMIERE CORNERBACK IN THE NFL FOR SIX YEARS WITH THE HOUSTON TEXANS, THREE YEARS WITH THE ATLANTA FALCONS, AND ONE YEAR WITH THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS. IN 2007, FOLLOWING WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN A CAREER ENDING INJURY, ROBINSON BEGAN THINKING ABOUT LIFE AFTER FOOTBALL. IT WAS IN THIS MOMENT THAT HE REALIZED HIS DESIRE TO NURTURE OTHER TALENTS AND BEGAN HIS PURSUIT OF A SECOND MAJOR DREAM. ROBINSON STRONGLY BELIEVES THAT THE EARLIER ONE IS EXPOSED TO AN IDEA, THE MORE IT WILL BECOME A PART OF THEM.

THIS IS WHY THE DUNTA ROBINSON FOUNDATION LAUNCHED TAKE THE LEAD IN 2017, AN ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM CATERED TO UNDERSERVED YOUTH. THE PROGRAM SHOWS YOUTH HOW TO TAKE A BUSINESS IDEA AND BRING IT TO LIFE, WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY PREPARING THEM FOR THE COMPETITIVE WORLD WE LIVE IN. TOO OFTEN, ACADEMIC PROGRAMS ARE EXTREMELY ONE-DIMENSIONAL, OFFERING GENERIC OUTLETS AND CAREER OPTIONS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION. ROBINSON HOPES THAT AS AN ATHLETE TURNED ENTREPRENEUR, HIS STORY WILL INSPIRE YOUTH TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX AND ADD BRANCHES TO THEIR DREAMS.
