Welcome to the Everett Hunter Foundation
Home for the High-Risk Teen!
WHAT WE DO:
The Everett Hunter Foundation’s (EHF) motto is “We Believe in Making Change and Breaking Chains”. This maxim springs from Founder Everett Hunter's personal experience with difficulties as a youth, and the caring adults who chose to intervene and showed him a better way. EHF is stepping up to the plate to take on the exciting challenge of helping youth in our communities - ages 11 to 19 - achieve their dreams. The Foundation endeavors to create a stable, creative learning environment for high-risk youth, and the EHF team is motivated about engaging the youth to incite a major transformation. EHF understands the importance of youth having a safe haven and outlet to constructively express themselves.
EHF is determined to see our youth progress, while teaching them to become people of character and helping them realize the importance of paying good things forward by giving back to the community. We believe that that this often overlooked population can and will succeed both in school and life if provided with the necessary tools and support to realize their dreams. EHF is determined to do just that: help our youth realize their dreams!
Established in 2011, EHF is a subsidiary of Everett Hunter Enterprises (EHE) which has been in existence since 2006, most well-known for its promotions company, Everett Hunter Presents. Now, with so much needed in the lives of our under-served youth, EHE has established a nonprofit entity and is excited about working with youth and communities throughout the Central Valley and beyond. Founder Everett Hunter, along with his knowledgeable and well-prepared team, is making significant strides to become one of the most-viable entities in the United States by reaching and transforming our high-risk teens into productive, successful citizens by providing essential services through sustainable models that can be replicated.
EHF endeavors to make a significant impact in the lives of our teens and will produce positive growth in our communities. High-risk teens are losing the battle of succeeding in school and in society. Having come from various backgrounds, these at-risk youth often have an underdeveloped values system, and this is a problem that should be of common concern. Without suitable guidance these youth are falling victim to neighborhood gangs, succumbing to the pressures of their peers, and lacking the confidence, education and much needed support to overcome challenges that stifle their individual growth and interfere with their becoming a positive member of the community.
Please get involved and thanks for stopping by the Everett Hunter Foundation.
