Programs & EVENTS

Our programs and events cater to our community of well deserving student-athletes who show exceptional conduct in the classroom and unparalleled relentlessness on the field. We continue to develop our engagement platform with our future leaders in mind. 


JTTF College Tour

The JTTF college tour is an annual collaboration between the JT Thomas III Foundation and the Team Tate Family. The college tour offers South Florida high school student athletes the opportunity to visit colleges and be evaluated and compete in front of Division 1, 2, and 3 college coaches. The tour is founded and managed by Tyler Tate, a fellow native of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, graduate of Jackson State University, and life-long friend of JT3. The Team Tate Family emphasizes the importance of this opportunity to allow students the experience for many to walk on their first college campus. Together, both organizations have contributed over 20 years of mentorship in Broward County and the City of Fort Lauderdale.



The Faith Scholarship is an opportunity for high school students to earn a need based scholarship up to $10,000 toward their pursuit of higher education. Criteria for the scholarship includes an essay, 50 community service hour served with the foundation, and a grade point average of 2.5 or higher.


Legends YFC

Legends YFC is our annual football camp hosted by JT Thomas III and former teammates and friends of the NFL. Our guests include both current and retired NFL players, community leaders, and the best of South Florida’s youth and high-school football talent. The kids are coached on not only making smart decisions on the field but off the field as well. Including life skills in the midst of the technical development of  our young men is essential to achieving our goal of developing more leaders in our community.
