“Empowering Our Communities/Nation By Embracing Diversity”
The J.F. Holder Foundation established the Fairmont Project as a platform to help create positive social change. The project’s mission is to invest into the social equity of at-risk youth, have real & honest conversations about race and culture in a safe and supportive environment, promote social enterprise & responsibility, and to layout strategies and solutions that advance positive racial and social transformation in America.
We host a Diversity Summit to develop strategic alliances, encourage networking, and to discuss ideas and practices that advance positive racial and social change in the United States. The Diversity Summit consists of an executive summit, symposium, and gala celebration. We collaborate with educators, advocates, law enforcement, activists, and civic & business leaders that represent the essence of diversity. We work to layout strategies and solutions to improve the following:
Today's young people receive little meaningful education about race and its continuous role in our society. Our Diversity Essentials workshop is designed to empower young people to having real and honest conversation about race relations in America. We layout the blueprint for at-risk youth to excel in today’s social climate. The Diversity Essentials workshop includes a luncheon, panel discussion, and keynote speaker that will inspire at-risk young to continue to push for excellence.
Urban Social is a workshop to help at-risk youth become multi-cultural & multi-experimental. The J.F. Holder Foundation believes a child’s culture, history and upbringing have a profound effect on their academic performance and personal growth. We aim to help at-risk youth understand their cultural identity and build awareness of other cultures, as well as promote cross cultural communication and cooperation.
It takes a village to empower our youth today. We need your support to continue to develop, improve and maintain our projects and programs. We are looking for volunteers, mentors, counselors and sponsors to work together with us. We cannot wait to welcome you to the family.
