JMF is currently a magnet program training urban youth into leaders on and off of the baseball field.
JMF’s magnet program has partnered with Alpha Middle School in Elverta, CA emphasizing that greatness starts within. In the classroom, youth learn about our great leaders, legends and beyond. JMF’s Homeroom weaves the school curriculum, Jackie Robinson’s Nine Values to Live By, and practical baseball applications for developing our youth. As each player takes the field to hone their skills, the uniform he must wear is Jackie’s Nine: Courage, Determination, Teamwork, Persistence, Integrity, Citizenship, Justice, Commitment, and Excellence.
The JMF and Alpha Middle School partnership serves as a pilot program towards reaching the ultimate goal of establishing clinical-school based programs nationwide.
