Journey4Josh (J4J) is a 501(c)3 foundation that seeks to change the future of at-risk children in Wilmington by funding access to positive extracurricular activities through scholarships and sponsorships.


Our goal is to reach at-risk youth in Wilmington, NC, connecting them with activities (performing arts, sports, ect.) and providing support and financial aid to the families.


Journey4Josh was born of tragedy.

On December 13, 2012, 19-year-old Joshua Proutey was robbed and killed for $10 and a sandwich while leaving his job at the Hannah Block Community Arts Center in downtown Wilmington; an event that shocked the community.

Meet Josh.

What some people don’t know is that Patty, Josh’s mom, took her loss and turned it into something positive: Journey4Josh.
