About the Foundation Programs Donors Events Resources Newsletter In The News



The JET Foundation is continuing to make a profound difference in our communities. Our latest news has to do with the announcement of new and continued initiatives we have planned for 2011 - 2012.

Programs will continue to be structured, offered in Community Involvement and Giving Back to provide academic support activities enriched with identity affirming experiences, that promote personal excellence. Linkages and collaboration with community and academic expertise and resources will enable the JET Foundation to expand its offerings with a key focus on supporting academic achievement and community building.

Two linkages of particular note are the:

  • F. Ruth Moore Volunteer Services Organization
    The focus of our organization is to build and reinforce self-esteem and self-respect in our children. The biggest reward is having many of these youngsters that once sat in the audience full of hope and facing an unknown future come back to say that we made a difference in their lives. It is our belief that in reaching out to our youth on a consistent basis, with a positive message will make them see that difference and give them the desire and the confidence to succeed.
  • Union Rescue Mission
    To create an environment and opportunity that fosters educational and spiritual growth, as well as physical and emotional health through programs and community partnerships to children and families that reside at our Transitional Housing Program. To work with the Family Services and Youth Coordinatoor to provide oversight for children and family programs and events.

In addition, bring and replicate the Youth Leadership and Success Institute-YLSI mentorship programs to all urban centers nationwide.

Roadmap to Student and Parent Success Weekend retreats (Family retreats)

  • In a warm vacation like setting together with family, covering Self-Esteem Building, Dream Attainment, Financial Literacy, Faith Building, Health, Fitness, and Wellness.
  • The JET Foundation continually seeks ways to be an effective enrichment to youth and has developed and incorporated as part of its core curriculum a “cognitive approach” to behavioral change. This “cognitive approach” involves developing four basic “senses” which when possessed by young people, builds self-esteem and develop into responsible citizens and leaders.

These senses are:

1) A Sense of Belonging - an environment where young people know they are welcome, where they fit in and are accepted

2) A Sense of Usefulness - the opportunity to do something of value

3) A Sense of Competence - creates a feeling of pride when young people know they can do something and do it well

4) A Sense of Power and Influence - a chance to be heard and influence decisions

Sometimes in life and in business decisions really are simple. This is one of them.
