In addition to the fashion and acting world, Joshua has devoted over 12 years to mentor youth and young adults with Neurodevelopmental Disorders.

Joshua Bolen was diagnosed with a learning disability, ADHD and also had a speech impediment. Therefore, he is well aware of the stigma and segregation that is associated with the diagnosis. However, with a major family support network that motivated him to believe that there is no goal out of his reach, he was able to overcome. Armed with life experience and a love of all people, he has harnessed these life lessons and now uses them to motivate and empower youth, and young adults living with Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
