Our vision is to promote and build engaged communities within which children are raised to feel empowered, valued and loved. And whom grow up to ultimately return to and lead those same communities.
Bringing together, building together, better together.
Through grassroots project-planning and implementation within three specific areas – Tacoma, Wash., Los Angeles, Calif., and Guam – the B3 Foundation will work to create and empower student leaders in underprivileged communities through annual initiatives in partnership with local schools.
THREE LOCATIONS, THREE GOALS
Tacoma. Los Angeles. Guam.
Who are we bringing?
All members of the community: Policy leaders, educators, law enforcement, coaches, parents and students.
What are we building?
Stronger and more connected communities and a generation of leaders.
How are we better?
By meeting tangible needs within the community, offering encouragement and support for underprivileged students and by strengthening the web of programs and support within the community.
WHAT WE DO
Each offseason, Zach will host one football camp in each community to teach both athletic and life skills to kids in underserved communities.
Each spring, Zach will visit each of the classes that was given backpacks to discuss the importance of education, perseverance and leadership.
Each fall, in each community, 2-3 classes of students will receive custom backpacks filled with school supplies, a B3 t-shirt, and other gifts as well as a personal message from a local community member.
