The T.A.C.K.L.E. Foundation seeks to change the way children are motivated and to promote their success through education. We have discovered that these tasks could mostly be accomplished by combating those factors that affect children and serve as deterrents to their education. Factors like violence, socio-economic status, community and home life rip the fabric of human dignity and jeopardize the future success of our children. For today’s youth, it is especially difficult to deal with such factors while obtaining an education.
By establishing the Lassiter T.A.C.K.L.E. Foundation in May 1999, We have began Teaching All Children to Kickoff Leadership through Education. The Lassiter T.A.C.K.L.E. Foundation will encourage new efforts by reinforcing the foundation of our youth’s educational circumstances. This organization will empower youth by strengthening their capacity to participate successfully and positively in every aspect of life. The programmatic focus of the T.A.C.K.L.E. Foundation is to inspire leadership by educational performance and to provide the essential and practical tools needed to complete a healthy transformation from childhood into a productive adulthood.
