We believe that all sports have a unique platform and power to transform our communities and the lives of our Nation’s greatest asset – children. We also recognize the importance of providing opportunities that help young people thrive and achieve personal victories that extend far beyond the game. Unfortunately, many children cannot access or afford to play organized and competitive sports. They are robbed of opportunities to have fun, build camaraderie with their peers, and experience the critical character and leadership lessons that sports provides. We envision a world where ALL kids have access to sports regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. The JDD Foundation was founded to serve underprivileged youth and utilize the power of sports to build stronger and healthier communities.
The JDD Foundation develops, educates, and empowers youth to become champions both on and off the court. We achieve this through programs and activities that are based on the foundation’s four Pillars to Success: Healthy Habits; Leadership & Character Building; Career Development; and Financial Literacy. With sports serving as our universal language and point of entry, our programs are specifically designed to penetrate and evolve the minds and bodies of our Nation’s future leaders.
