Our Kids Believe in Themselves

We do Stuff.

We do Junk.

We are Stuff & Junk.

Our Staff


As a youth development nonprofit, we use year-round outdoor, arts, sports and a range of other engaging activities to afford students with enduring mentor-based relationships. We mix outdoor experiential learning, character development, community service, values-based leadership development, social justice advocacy, and peer mentoring with STEAM activities to encourage our youth to transform themselves and others around them for the better.

OUR APPROACH: A systematic placement of “cool” adults who genuinely CARE and LISTEN to young people in order to prepare them to make ethical and moral choices throughout their lives.


Dewuan X. Davis is a published children’s author and full-time dad. He moonlights as a Mobile Application Developer but his real passion lies with the youth surrounding him. Dewuan believes that in order to create a brighter future, we must begin with the children because they ARE the future. With his caring nature, Dewuan has always taken time to volunteer with youth movements, coach, and mentor. He is also a standing board member of the PTA at his children’s elementary school.


Teesa Wallace has worked in Childcare for over 8 years with significant experience in planning, implementing and assessing child development through the use of creative curriculum and activities. She carries proudly her Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential.

As a CDA, being able to communicate with parents to support the unique needs of each individual child lends directly to our cause of providing engaging and fun experiences for children of ALL ages.


Vasundhara Goyal is a financial professional and marketing consultant. She was valedictorian at her high school and now routinely tutors youth because she believes that education is key.

Vasundhara has extensive experience with leadership roles and teamwork so it is a major concern of hers to pass that on to our up and coming youth. She believes that if we arm the next generation with proper morals and accountability, they will be put into position to reach their full potential while becoming upstanding members of society.


Jaime Salazar is a Cloud Service Engineer for an IT Security company and a full time father. He has been, and is currently, active in multiple organizations designated to helping children from the Boys and Girls Clubs to the Miracle League in Arlington. He’s passionate about helping others and showing children all that life has to offer by putting God and Education above everything else.

    Fishing, Family & Fun

    Need to get away? Take a short road trip from DFW or Waco to the shores of Lake Whitney. You’ll find clear water, plenty of campsites, and a great place to relax with the family.

    Things to Do

    We offer water activities galore, from fishing and swimming to boating and skiing. On shore, you can explore the trails, see the stars, try geocaching, or set up camp.

    A wide variety of wildlife lives in the park. Watch for deer, raccoons, snakes, armadillos and opossums. Wild turkeys and bald eagles have also been sighted here.


    Fish for largemouth, striped and white bass, or bring home a prize blue catfish. Get detailed fishing and lake information for Lake Whitney.

    The park has a boat ramp and a fish cleaning shelter. We also loan fishing gear for use in the park. You do not need a fishing license to fish from shore in a state park.

    We hold an annual youth fishing tournament on the first Saturday in June.


    Choose from campsites with water only, water and electricity, or full hookups. We also have screened shelters, many with a lake view.

    Hiking and Biking

    Explore our trails, or get in your steps on park roads. All trails are open to hikers and bikers.

    Bass Fishing and More . . .

    Our 355-acre lake is a bass fishing destination, but fishing is not all we offer. Come to swim, canoe, camp, explore nature or relax. We’re just an hour southeast of Dallas.

    Things to Do

    You’ll find plenty to do at Purtis Creek State Park. Paddle a kayak or canoe, hike and bike, camp, geocache and picnic. Rent our picnic pavilion for your next gathering.


    Our lake features catch-and-release largemouth bass, as well as catfish and crappie that you can take home. We have fishing piers, fish cleaning stations and boat ramps.

    Hike and bike

    Tackle the 4.1-mile Wolfpen Hike and Bike Trail. The 1.7-mile Beaver Slide Nature Path takes you along the lakeshore. Or explore the short, easy Solar Trail along the dam.

  • 10:00 AM-6:00 PM

    Blue Water & Scenic Shores

    How long since you’ve been to the lake? Grab your family, fishing pole and swimsuit and head for the clear blue water and striking scenery at Possum Kingdom State Park. We’re just an hour west of the DFW Metroplex.

    Things to Do

    Possum Kingdom State Park offers fun on water and land. On water, you can swim, boat, fish, ski, scuba dive and snorkel. On land, you can camp, picnic, hike, bike, study nature and geocache. Take a virtual tour with our interactive trails map.

    Fish for largemouth, striped and white bass; channel and blue catfish; and white crappie. The park has a boat launch, fishing pier, and fish cleaning station. You do not need a fishing license to fish from shore in a state park.

    Possum Kingdom Lake has over 300 miles of shoreline and many scenic coves.
