THE JABAAL SHEARD FOUNDATION
I developed the Jabaal Sheard Foundation Inc. with the goal of impacting disadvantaged children and providing them with opportunities in the fields of educational advancement and healthy living. As a current professional athlete, it has become my mission to change the current climate that our inner city youth face, focusing on core values of mentorship, wellness, and education.
PURPOSE AND MISSION:
The Jabaal Sheard Foundation provides at-risk youth with outreach programs that include: mentorship, educational advancement and overall wellness to promote healthy and active lifestyles as well as higher education. The foundation provides sports training, mentorship, educational workshops annual scholarships, and afterschool programs for boys and girls.
ANNUAL FREE FOOTBALL CAMP
The Jabaal Sheard Foundation will host free football camps and clinics in the inner city of Hollywood, FL. The camps will include parent workshops, tutoring workshops, community service as well as football performance training instructed by professional athletes. The camps actively promote the organization’s purpose and enable youth to gain access to educational resources, as well as providing a safe haven for sport.
The Jabaal Sheard Foundation believes in providing children with the necessary resources to be successful in life’s challenging terrain. The Foundation has created a mentorship and advancement program that provides hands on training to youth in the Hollywood community in the areas of nutrition, education, health, fitness and leadership.
Goals of the Program:
- To encourage students to assume responsibility for life-long learning and personal health and well-being.
- To understand how personal nutrition, fitness and education are integrated and why it is important to maintain balance in all three areas.
JABAAL’S TACKLES FOR A’S
The Jabaal Sheard Foundation recognizes academic and athletic achievement within our youth. The Tackles For A’s program has been established to incentivize students to continue their pursuit of educational advancement and studies in and out of the classroom. Students in the program will be rewarded with unique yearly experiences:

JABAAL’S ACTS OF KINDNESS
The Jabaal Sheard Foundation understands the importance of providing those in need with resources that impact their daily lives. Each month the foundation will target one family in need within the Hollywood and Broward community to provide an Act of Kindness. The Acts Of Kindness program will provide support in the form of monetary and/or in-kind contributions related to daily needs and resources.
