Joy Bryant Mentors Inner-City Kids Through Sports

‘Parenthood’ star works with Stoked to help kids develop self-esteem.

“Growing up, I got so much from people giving to me,” says Joy Bryant. “I have to do the same and give back, right?” The charismatic actress does just that by working with Stoked Mentoring, a bicoastal organization that coaches at-risk kids through action sports like surfing and snowboarding. Come winter, Bryant—who has been active with Stoked for almost five years as a volunteer, fundraiser and board member—will shred for a good cause again.
