About Us

Our Mission

Ten2One Foundation is a North American non-profit program, designed to shift social attitudes through the formation of genuine relationships between police officers and the communities they serve to protect.  Our goal is to humanize and harmonize the connection between police and ethnic communities, repair and reduce the adversarial relationship that currently exists. Ten2One believes that through social engagement, friendship and mutual understanding, we can work towards eliminating local community conflicts.

Our Story

Founder and Director Henry Chapman has extensive experience as a teacher, martial artist, community activist, youth worker and security specialist. As an African American growing up in an imperiled community, the Ecorse projects of Detroit, Henry was encouraged from an early age to study martial arts and learn skills to avoid violence.  

Through his mastery of martial arts, Henry devised and conducted programs such as WITS (Wise Intervention Training Systems), aimed at training bar personnel in preventing violence before it breaks out. He also designed self-defense and safety awareness courses such as SAFE (Safety Awareness for Females Everywhere) and MAGIK (Martial Arts for Guidance Inspiration and Knowledge).

Henry designed and runs the California based Safe Passage program, a self-defense and anti-abduction course for middle-school children.   

Throughout his career, Henry has served as a lance corporal in the United States Marine Corps and continues to serve his community by working with police authorities, schoolboards, faith-based organizations and non-profit groups dedicated to raising community awareness of at-risk youth. 

With his strong leadership qualities, Henry is passionate about teaching youth in low-socioeconomic areas to stay safe while exercising anti-violence and conflict resolution practices.

Programs

Ten2One Foundation is a designated mentorship program that will bring together students and police officers. The program’s aim is to build mutual trust through improved education for youth and increased understanding of the community stresses placed on police in maintaining safety and protection for all community members. The goal is to begin a mutually nurturing relationship that would involve meeting twice monthly through team-building activities, field trips, seminars and utilizing entertainment as an interactive education tool.

Ten2One Foundation stands behind all participants to ensure that this experience is both equally productive and life enhancing to all.  Ten2One Foundation is expected to be a springboard for positive action between police and communities of color and to reduce the adversarial relationship that so often prevails in North American urban centers.
