Dau Jok is the founder of the Dut Jok Youth Foundation. He was a two-time co-captain of University of Pennsylvania Men’s basketball team, C’14. He has a BA in Philosophy and minor in African Studies from Penn and a MSc in Global Leadership from Goldsmiths, University of London in the UK. He is pursuing a Doctor of Education: Leadership from Drake University. Dau went on service trips to Rwanda and Nigeria as an undergraduate that he says helped shape his visions for the foundation. But it was the $10,000 Kathryn Davis 100 Projects for Peace grant he received in 2011 that allowed him to establish the Dut Jok Youth Foundation. He was the 2014 Collegiate winner of the prestigious Coach John Wooden Wooden Citizenship Cup presented by Athletes for a Better World. Dau dreams of transforming education and sports in his native land of South Sudan.
