Foundation History
America Youth Foundation founded and incorporated in April 2019 by President/Founder Jimmy Jay. His goal is to create sustainability and self sufficiency with at-risk young Americans.

“Growing up as a young boy in the state of Mississippi-in the midst of segregation and division, I made a promise to be a part of positive change. You never know how impactful you can be in one person’s life or how impactful one person can be to you. Stay humble, move in silence, work hard and let your hard work speak in volume”.
