In 2004 Richard felt there was a need to give back to Jersey City, a need to give more to inner city kids. He developed the Richard Glover Football Camp in conjunction with Jersey City Parks and Recreation but he was limited to the summers because of his job. When the opportunity presented itself Richard decided to go home. In an effort to give back to his community he founded The Richard Glover All Access to Life Foundation. We were incorporated in New Jersey Oct 2004 and are a 501c(3) organization
His vision is to provide opportunities for all children (target inner city) to have access to the American Dream.
Our mission is to educate and enrich children's' lives. Using the concept of team and working together children will have the opportunity to learn to use life skills, to appreciate the importance of academia, understand the value of the arts and finally be involved in their community.
Our Motto: TOUCH ONE – TOUCH MANY is evidenced in our efforts to involve the community in many of the projects and activities that we provide our children.
We work with Community Volunteer and organizations such as the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity who volunteer time for our youth camps, CAS (Community Awareness Series) and the Jersey City Parks and Recreations Department they provide much of the space we need to accommodate the many children we serve.
While we are not political involved we make an effort to find out the needs of our community and welcome ideas that we can pursuit that will enrich our children’s lives. We feel that it is important for our community to work hand in hand with those who have an interest in their neighborhood.
