The goals of the Baron Jay Family Foundation are:
1To build good character development in our youth beneficiaries by enhancing life-skills development in self-motivation, self esteem, and anger management; awareness of health and psycho social issues relevant to their everyday lives; academic knowledge and skills; general preparedness for the job market; financial literacy; and opportunities for professional career training in specific industries.
2To educate young people about the impact of multimedia on the public at large, including disenfranchised groups, in relation to local and world affairs; and to give them the professional tools to responsibly use media in peer-to-peer education and community outreach in order to elevate public consciousness about social responsibilities in assisting under served populations.
3To sponsor community programs, events, and public conversations — especially peer driven activities hosted “by youth for youth” –that empower disadvantaged youth participants.
4To hold workshops and classes, and to provide referrals to internship, apprenticeship and mentoring opportunities for participants potentially interested in professional careers in media and entertainment that give them exposure to careers in these fields.
5To promote digital education and technology transfer on both domestic and international levels to help improve the lives of people living in low-income, undeserved communities of the developing world, including, but not limited to, countries in Sub Saharan Africa.
