Mission Statement

The Jason Taylor Foundation supports and creates programs that facilitate the personal growth and empowerment of South Florida's children in need by focusing on improved health care, education and quality of life.

Description

The Jason Taylor Foundation prides itself on innovative, impactful programming. Every September 60 deserving children are each given a $300 back-to-school shopping opportunity at Old Navy as part of the "Cool Gear for the School Year" program. To date, more than $200,000 in new clothes has been awarded. Currently, more than 75 middle and high school students participate in the Jason Taylor Reading Room, a comprehensive after-school program designed to address academic challenges among inner-city youth, particularly in the areas of literacy, and the program recently expanded to a second location. The Reading Room also features a Spoken Word Poetry component that incubated a full-blown network, now featuring more than 50 public schools throughout Broward County. The bluapple Poetry Network is rapidly expanding into other school districts with the launch of Louder Than a Bomb Florida, which brings school-based poetry teams together to showcase this art form through a friendly competition, while providing teens from diverse backgrounds a common vehicle for written and performance-based self-expression.
