Coming Your Way Soon to the Small Screen

This is an amazing effort by Joe Patane, of MTV’s Real World: Miami fame. Now a social worker and a licensed therapist, Joe has built a foundation and started Dream Camps for teens who have been through many traumatic experiences in their lives. He’s worked hard at finding a production company that won’t exploit the teens for ratings and I think he’s finally zoning in on a completed project that is sure to be inspiring. Check out a clip:

Full disclosure: Joe is my college roommate and has been a friend for nearly a quarter century. He’s amazingly creative and has a real heart for the youth he serves. He’s gained tremendous support from some big names like Steve Wozniak, Drew Carey and Charles Schultz’s family (creator of the Peanuts comic strip, better known as Charlie Brown and Snoopy).

So keep you eyes pealed, while I’m not a fan of reality TV, this show will not be like watching a train wreck, as way reality TV often is. It’s sure to inspire.

How do I know? Because Joe has inspired me for nearly 25 years now.

Well done, my friend.
