The Jahri Evans Foundation is partnering with The Philadelphia School District to assist all students in achieving their full intellectual and social potential in order to become lifelong learners and productive members of society.

In April 2013 JEF sponsored a PSSA (standardized test) competition between 2 Philadelphia public schools (Lewis Elkins Elementary & Frances D. Pastorius Elementary, 3rd and 4th graders) to motivate students to achieve academic excellence and promote teamwork and school pride.
