The two main programs of The Jarrett Payton Foundation are dedicated to spreading the sentiment Jarrett’s father repeated to him time and time again: “We are all more similar than we are all different.”
PROJECT: NO BULL is an in-school anti-bullying program featuring personal appearances from Jarrett Payton, strong messaging and influential projects, and a lasting impact that seeks to create and maintain safe environments for our youth.
Through PROJECT: NO BULL, all forms of bullying will be addressed, including cyber bullying. Drawing from the latest research, the majority of the program highlights the roll of bystanders, and encourages young people to speak out if and when they see bullying occur, online or in person.
THE JARRETT PAYTON ACADEMY (JPA), will launch in June of 2012. JPA is a three-day summer skills camp geared towards enrich lives and building confidence in young men (ages 10-12) through the game of football. Participants will leave the camp with a further education in specific football skills and knowledge, as well as leadership skills, wellness tips, strengthened relationships with peers, and more.
