The James R. Jordan Foundation is dedicated to creating networks of support for families and communities. We exist to strengthen families, motivate youth and ensure high quality academic opportunities for children in underserved communities. Together with our partners, we make a difference. We empower children to achieve their full potential, and we level the playing field for them to become productive contributors to society.
The Foundation believes a strong family is a critical component of a child’s academic success, which provides a pathway out of poverty. The Foundation’s series of programs supports the academic development of youth, through a mentorship approach. These programs encourage parental involvement, expose students to STEAM, foster a love for reading and provide college readiness assistance and scholarship awards.
