The Overcame Foundation, Inc. (OVC) was founded in October 2015. Founder, Leonard Chester had a vision to help the youth and young adults in underprivileged environments and together he and co-founder Jade Harper brought that vision to life.
Currently, The Foundation is serving communities in Philadelphia and Baltimore. Creating platforms for talented youth across the two cities, The Overcame Foundation strives to teach young people how to be leaders through education, service, wellness and visual arts. Ultimately the organization is striving to provide scholarships and book awards to youth who work hard to overcome adversity.
Along with providing funding for deserving youth to follow their dreams, The Overcame Foundation also facilitate the Building Young Leaders Youth Mentoring Program in Philadelphia and the Youth Empowerment Seminar program in Baltimore.
The organization believes in the idea that it takes a strong community to raise strong youth. Hosting community events promoting health, wealth and support for all is very important to The Overcame Foundation.
To see change, we must create change; change starts with us!
The Overcame Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
