The Coach Jake Foundation is founded on the principle that everyone deserves to "Have a Better Life."   With soccer as a vehicle, we are advocates for our under served urban youth with the goal of fulfilling their dreams and improving their futures. Our organization provides the service of supporting our community's youth in succeeding in life.

The Coach Jake Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that believes in assisting our urban youth with legal, educational and social challenges. Our vision has been fostered on this premise that all children, no matter where they come from, deserve the opportunity and should be given the means they need to develop into exceptional and productive citizens.


See a brighter future through the world’s greatest sport: soccer!”
— Coach Jake - Founder


Many young people in and around cities are at risk of
