About Thomas Davis Youth Leadership Academy

tdyla logo 250
TDYLA was developed by Carolina Panther player Thomas Davis’ Defending Dreams Foundation. The program equips middle school age youth with the practical skills needed to become productive, self-fulfilled and achievement-oriented young adults and community leaders.

The program’s goal is to support or build an educational foundation for the student and to help each participant realize and/or maximize their full potential. The hope is that TDYLA will produce leaders and role models who will lead projects that will help in the improvement of their neighborhoods and communities.
