Jam is a trusted advisor to corporate sponsors, non-profit organizations, professional athletes and their families. Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, Jam Sports has worked with some of the most elite and prominent world-class athletes and entertainers in the world.

Jam works closely with Juli’s Kids Motivated to Succeed a non-profit organization. Affectionately referred to as Juli’s Kids, the charity’s passionate mission is to motivate, inspire, strengthen, empower and enrich the quality of life of today’s abused, abandoned, neglected, bullied and homeless children and teens placed in foster care and social services in the United States and the Dominican Republic. Many have been rescued from abusive and neglectful parents or guardians and placed in emergency child protective services, group homes or with compassionate foster care parents. Most are waiting to be adopted into loving and caring “forever” families. Children in foster care can range in age from infants to 21 years old. These phenomenal youths are considered wards of the state under the Department of Child and Protective Services, but at Juli’s Kids they are “our sons” and “our daughters”. The charity has raised over $1,000,000 to assist unique programs, raise awareness of the child abuse epidemic and enhance the day-to-day living of these extraordinary youth in crisis who are facing many tough issues and life struggle. This Foundation has provided over 1.2 million hours of volunteerism, and hands-on services to foster care programs, Departments of Child and Family Services, neighborhoods, and communities around the Nation. Juli’s Kids provides a philanthropic avenue for financial and therapeutic support, creates special once-in-a-lifetime experiences, prepares public service announcements for celebrity supporters and ad campaigns for National Foster Care Month and National Adoption Month.
