~Our Mission~
"Our foundation provides support and resources in order to shape the youth of today to become the leaders of tomorrow."

First Lady Michelle Obama & Jameel McClain


"Jameel McClain leads the way in inspiring youth and their families with his time, talents and resources with this organization. It is difficult to express in a few words the positive impact he has had on many children in Jersey City over the past 2 years. Many have started the year off with school supplies and sneakers and the knowledge that no matter what, they can overcome whatever adversity they may face with hard work. The gift of human kindness is shown by Jameel and his team of volunteers throughout the year and we have been blessed and honored to have them share with our children in Jersey City."
