The Forever Young Foundation
The Forever Young Foundation was founded in 1993 with the mission of providing resources for children who are trying to realize their potential in the face of economic, emotional and physical obstacle. The Foundation focuses on the health and development, strength and education of children, collaborating with sister charities and NGOs across America and around the world to provide the most effective academic, athletic and financial supports possible.
Engage Now Africa
Engage Now Africa are the African NGO partner administering our initiatives in Ethiopia, Ghana, Namibia and Sierra Leone, working to help provide the comforts many of us take for granted: basic education and literacy, adequate food and shelter, healthy drinking water and relief from extreme poverty. Above all, the mission is empowerment: saving children’s lives by implementing sustainable self-help solutions tailored to village life. Carried out by volunteers who pay their own way to reach out and help others in need, Engage Now leverages the power of each and every individual among us to dedicate themselves to making a difference.
Forever Young Institute
The Forever Young Institute provides a year-long development program for non-profit leaders. Carried out in partnership with the Arbinger Institute, a leader in management training and team building, this program covers operational and strategic planning, accountability to donors, and best practices for keeping your non-profit’s staff, board and volunteers focused and results-oriented.
Forever Young Zones
Forever Young Zones are a variety of different facilities made especially for children facing serious challenges:
Hospital Zones in children’s hospitals in Utah, California and Arizona provide sanctuaries for children facing serious illness. Here, staff can build relationships with their young patients and help them with the process of recovery, and children can play, relax and just be themselves.
Multimedia Zones provide state-of-the-art media technology and training, putting these advanced tools into the hands of creative young people and giving them the opportunity to develop skills and modes of artistic expression they might otherwise not have gotten to explore.
8 to 80 Zones are a special collaboration between Steve Young and Jerry Rice, dedicated to preparing youth in under-served communities for careers in technology and media, allowing for both artistic expression and practical training on industry-standard equipment and software.
Sophie’s Place is one of our newest initiatives, named in honor of beloved friend and singer-songwriter Sophie Barton. It provides dedicated music therapy spaces in children’s hospitals, harnessing the undeniable healing power of music in a clinically-sound integrative medical approach to treating and providing comfort for youth facing serious injury, chronic pain or illness.
