Growing up in Philadelphia Jahri Evans didn’t have the opportunity or the means to go football camps to improve his game. Evans relied on his size and talent to star at Frankford High School, and then earn an academic scholarship to Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. Now, after 12 NFL seasons, , the six-time Pro Bowl guard continues to help those kids back in Philadelphia who were just like he was. Through the Jahri Evans Foundation, which the big guard started with his sister, Carmella Green, thousands of young men have been able to go to a free football camp over the past 10 years.

Jahri Evans, Superbowl XLIV Champion and Green Bay Packers Right Guard, supports Think AED's mission is to raise awareness to ensure public school systems have the the funds to purchase lifesaving Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and supplies.
The Jahri Evans Foundation was created to illustrate to student athletes that academic excellence paves the way to athletic excellence through encouragement, determination and hard work. The Jahri Evans Foundation helps students further their education and athletic career by providing scholarships and sponsoring an Annual Free Youth Football and Cheer Camp instructed by NFL players and professional cheerleaders. We have since expanded our community outreach to include all students, military veterans and community groups of all ages. On a mission to affect change the foundation has provided thousands of dollars in charitable donations to health organizations such as The National MS Society and The American Cancer Society. We have built homes for military veterans and provided college scholarships and much needed supplies and equipment to schools, students and community organizations.
Along with motivating all students to achieve academic excellence we also inspire and help our students maintain good health. The Jahri Evans Foundation urges students to get involved in ongoing physical activities to promote a healthy lifestyle and lessen the chances and complications of diabetes, heart disease and other health issues that may arise as a result of childhood obesity.
