The Justin Pepper Foundation plans and hosts volunteer events. We also recognize and reward youth who excel in volunteerism and philanthrophy with scholarships and awards.
The Justin Pepper Foundation was formed in October of 2007, to encourage youth to be charitable in the same manner that Justin had been in his short lifetime. Anyone who ever met Justin enjoyed his outgoing personality and drive, but especially his kindness and concern for others. The events on this site are scheduled to keep Justin's giving nature and kindness alive. We have found that through volunteer activities and charitable actions, youth (and adults) provide clarity to our motto of
"....proof that you are never too young to make a difference."
