Keeping Youth Journeying Onward (KYJO)

Sep 14, 2015 06:52AM, Published by Kevin, Categories: Today in this issue, Spotlight



Fresno-based organization Keeping Youth Journeying Onward (KYJO) addresses the needs of the Central Valley’s foster children through six group homes in Fresno, Clovis and Hanford. These homes not only give foster children the opportunity to live in a stable, supportive environment, they provide academic assistance, arrange field trips that encourage personal and academic growth and help to match each child with long-term, loving homes. 

Two of the organization’s efforts to help the children in their care involved other prominent leaders in our community. On July 11, KYJO’s Big B.A.N.G. Weekend held a free football clinic for young players in the 4th through 8th grades. Children participating in the event were coached by Pittsburgh Steelers Safety Robert Golden, linebacker Lance Briggs and Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Isaiah Burse. The event was held at Fresno State’s Bulldog Stadium. 

KYJO kicked off the weekend the day before with a fundraising gala held at Porsche of Fresno, with all proceeds going to helping the children KYJO benefits. Alumni of Fresno State’s football team and current NFL players with connections to the organization were in attendance. A silent auction, wine tasting and a PACE Exotic Car showcase were part of the festivities.
