Henri Crockett, Founder and President of the Crockett Foundation, shared the organization's commitment to philanthropy and youth development during a feature on Inside South Florida. Since its inception in 2002, the Crockett Foundation has made a significant positive impact on thousands of children's lives in the South Florida community.

The foundation prioritizes providing underprivileged youth with valuable tech skills, including coding, eSports, and artificial intelligence, aiming to bridge the digital divide prevalent in underserved communities. Crockett highlights the transformative potential of these skills, enabling young individuals to secure employment opportunities and earn substantial incomes while still in high school.

Various youth programs under the foundation's umbrella, such as the Sports Park and Health and Wellness initiative in Pompano Beach, host impactful events like the 707 tournament and back-to-school programs, engaging over 50 teams and 4000 children.

The foundation sustains its impactful initiatives through annual fundraisers, such as "Sips & Cigars" at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Henri Crockett emphasizes that 100% of the funds raised directly contribute to programs benefiting children in need. While financial contributions are appreciated, the foundation equally values the impact of volunteer work in supporting the youth programs.
