Founded in 2007, the Fight For Life Foundation helps underserved youth develop the social and emotional qualities needed for success. Since that time it has grown from the vision of founder Marlin Jackson into an independent 501(c)3 organization delivering services to vulnerable youth by providing social-emotional learning programs to more than 12,741 underserved youth.
Our mission at Fight For Life Foundation (FFLF) is to help deserving but underserved youth develop the social and emotional qualities needed to be successful.
These qualities include self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. FFLF programs use education, athletics, and wellness activities as the foundation for positive youth development.
