The Crain/Jefferson Enrichment Foundation (C/JEF) is a non-profit organization that was created to educate, encourage, and equip minority and disadvantaged youth with resources and skills they will need to achieve success and have a positive impact in the communities in which they live and serve. Though our name is fairly new to the community, our organization was established over 15 years ago in Denver, CO. The organization recently transitioned into a new era where we have expanded our programs and vision to inspire and impact youth across the nation, and in Africa as well.
Now in our second year of programming we are proud to announce that we have been able to inspire and impact over 150 young minority male and females through our Young Kings and Young Queens Conferences. Attendees at those conferences were exposed to prominent professionals who have excelled in various carreer paths and industries. Attendees not only received a wealth of knowledge and helpful information, but some of them had the opportunity to win special prizes. Since December of 2022, C/JEF has given away 12 laptop computers and a growing number of scholarships now totalling $12,000! Though we are just getting started, we are proud of the direction we are heading. However, WE NEED YOUR HELP! If you are pleased to hear what we are doing and you are interested in supporting our efforts, there are two ways you can help:

It is FREE to attend. We have a powerful program and an awesome opportunity for the youth lined up, but if they don’t show up they can’t take advantage of it, and …
2) Please consider helping to sponsor an event, or one of our programs by making a financial contribution to help furnish laptop computers and scholarships for students in, or planning to attend college. C/JEF is a 501(C)3 organization. Donations are tax deductible and can also be made here on our website.
