JACK BREWER FOUNDATION:
The Jack Brewer Foundation’s mission is to “Empower From Within” by promoting cultural awareness, and providing educational and economic resources to underprivileged communities worldwide. JBF Worldwide was founded by Jack Brewer, former NFL Safety for the Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals. He launched JBF Worldwide from an inherited belief that, through economic and educational opportunities, all individuals have the power to be successful and achieve their dreams. Through dedication and a global sense of responsibility, JBF aims to fulfill their mission with a combination of three unique programs: Young Leader Initiative (YLI), The Partnership to Protect Children (PPC) and the JBF Microfinance Program.
