Dwayne Patrick developed the I CAN brand in 2015, when he realised local communities were lacking bespoke programmes that focused on empowering and developing children. With this in mind, Dwayne formulated the highly recommended I CAN brand with the vision it would equip children with lifelong skills such as self-determination, self-belief and assertiveness, all of which potentially impact everyday life.
Since its incorporation, the I-CAN Project has consistently grown with programmes introduced in schools, charities and not for profit organisations across London.
Dwayne has worked with and mentored hundreds of young people, giving them the tools and skills needed to manage life’s challenges and how to overcome barriers such as self-belief and limited confidence. He recently appeared on ITV’s Your Song, which welcomed Rita Ora into the studio as part of I CAN Music Express programme, and also received a royal visit from Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who commended Dwayne and the value of the I CAN Project.
