Who We Are


The Youth of The Jordan Foundation:
..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................


The numbers of children who qualify for our program are endless.  Our thorough screening process allows us to identify those boys and girls that truly want to become an active participant in their own success.  These children are in desperate need of intense academic tutoring and life skills to fill the gap from where they are to where they need to be to succeed in life.  Typically, when a kid comes into our program, he is functioning 2 years behind where they should be.  Each year goes by, these children falls further behind. The kids are chosen from families whose annual income is less than $30,000 per year.  The Jordan Foundation currently has access to a pool of 800 kids from in and around the Tri-State area.


What Makes The Jordan Foundation Unique?
...............................................................................................................................................................................


1.  We are 24/7 solution providers:  Our job, our calling, is to serve these kids.  They can reach at any time.  When they are going to make bad decisions we are there.  We work hard to build relationships so that each and every youngster always has options.  We don't just talk about problems, we provide answer, a way out and the motivation to keep moving forward.



2.  We are long range:  Our program is not a one time donation to the underprivileged.  Through experience we know that success is an ongoing habit.  We stay the course.  From the first time we communicate what is required from a potential candidate to the time we market that youth to colleges through graduation, our program is in play.



3.  We are focused:  We begin with one thing, a love for baseball.  We do not try to be all things to all kids.  We take those that are within our sphere of influence and create a partnership with them.  You could call us a niche marketer, in the business of building pride and character.
