Help support the Tavis Smiley Foundation by giving today.
Tavis Smiley has come a long way from his humble beginnings in Gulfport, Mississippi (PDF).
Through our mission to enlighten, encourage, and empower, the Tavis Smiley Foundation, founded in 1999, works to develop and mentor future leaders by providing leadership training that will promote and enhance a greater quality of life for them, their communities and the world. The Foundation seeks to examine barriers and identify solutions to alleviate poverty in the United States across all sectors including youth, underserved communities and families. It is recognized as a nonprofit public charity under section 501©3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
Over the years, the foundation has mentored and trained over 6,000 youths at leadership training workshops and conferences. It is very active in the community and continuously gives back by participating in educational events. With the help of Microsoft, the foundation created the technology lab at Compton High School.
