The Hampton Roads Youth Foundation celebrates 24 years in the community this July. We are excited to create and provide new educational programming for our youth to include our new web series 757 Roundtable Talk streaming weekly on Facebook Live and accessible on our YouTube channel. As we enter into Phase 2 of the Executive Order issued by Governor Northam, we recognize that many restrictions are being lifted. Prior to Covid-19 we highly anticipated being able to celebrate our annual weekend of events with you all consisting of our Student-Athlete Leadership Symposium, Football Camp, Casino Night with Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin and Celebrity Bowling Party. However, the health and safety of our campers, coaches, players and special guests is our #1 priority. This year, our 24th Annual Hampton Roads All-Star Football Camp will be a virtual event, free for all to experience. While we continue to navigate through uncharted territory, we thank you for your continued support and participation. Stay tuned for more details regarding our 24th Annual Virtual Camp and get the latest updates on our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and our website.
HRYF COVID-19 Response
During these times of uncertainty and COVID-19, the Hampton Roads Youth Foundation is committed to remaining a supportive outlet in the community. We look forward to continuing our initiatives through scholarships and virtual exposure. With our 24th Annual Weekend tentatively scheduled for July 9-11, 2020 please stay tuned as we navigate the best way possible to remain safe and protect the health and safety of our athletes and supporters.
Over the last 23 years, the Hampton Roads Youth Foundation has been exploring ways to create durable gains that measurably improve the lives of youth throughout the Hampton Roads area.
Hampton Roads All-Star Weekend targets at-risk children between the ages of eight and fourteen. A key element of our all-star weekend’s success has been the participation of over 20 current and former NFL players. (General Registration starts June 1st)
Every year we give student-athletes the opportunity to earn a potential athletic scholarship! Over 30 Colleges and Universities have participated in the past with over 20 high school players having earned athletic scholarships.
Leading By Example
“Its not about getting to the NFL, But becoming a Champion in life.””
“I’m here for kids, its an opportunity for me to have fun and give back.””
“They’re making a big impact in these kids lives, and there’s a million different places these athletes could be, but they commit their time to come out here with these kids every year, it truly means a lot to me.””
