On Tuesday, May 1st 2018, Stephen Owen presented Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy a check for $15,000.00 donated on behalf of The Jake Owen Foundation. For the past several years The Jake Owen Foundation has contributed to Youth Guidance and has helped our organization in fulfilling our mission, enriching the lives of Indian River County youth through mentoring relationships that inspire trust, self-esteem and positive futures.
“Jake Owen is the prime personification of civic engagement. A Vero Beach native, he successfully converted a personal injury mishap into a successful music career. However, never forgetting his roots, he has quietly provided funding to disadvantaged children in Indian River County, through many years of monetary contributions to the mentoring programs of Youth Guidance. We are grateful to have him and both his parents, as ardent supporters.” – Felix Cruz, Executive Director, Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy
The Jake Owen Foundation was created to offer its support on a national level to children battling cancer and other childhood diseases through St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital while also lending its support to youth organizations and various charities in Owen’s hometown area of Indian River County, Fl. The local organizations benefiting from the foundation’s annual event assist youth with illnesses, shelter, food, education, health and fitness, the arts and the opportunity to better themselves through various programs and organizations.
Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy is very appreciative and thankful for the support and donation from the Jake Owen Foundation. For more information about Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy please visit our website at youthguidanceprogram.org or call 772-492-3933.
