LET’S ENSURE STUDENTS RETURN TO SCHOOL WITH CONFIDENCE THIS FALL_
Prepare Youth For School and Beyond
Travis Manion Foundation is holding a day of character development, group activities, and outreach for local youth this August to prepare them for a new school year. Middle and high school-aged students will be invited to a day of interactive, character development lessons, games, and activities.
Each student will receive a TMF backpack full of school supplies to start the year as well as mentorship and connection with several of TMF’s vetted and trained Veteran Mentors.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Did you know, school supplies and fees for middle schoolers cost nearly $1,300 per student per year? Donate today to support this event and help us to bridge gaps in communities nationwide.Make a Donation >>
Join one of our service projects in preparation for Back to School Character Day. We need dedicated volunteers like you to join packing events in a dozen cities across the country to prepare our bags with school supplies to provide to our youth participants.

Sponsor a Backpack
1 in 5 students cannot afford the school supplies they need to be successful. Sponsor a backpack, filled with supplies plus a day of mentorship with a Veteran Mentor for one student for $30. Ensure that we can provide participants with everything they need to have a successful return to school.Sponsor a Backpack >>
Bridging the Divide
Trained Veteran Mentors from TMF will bridge a critical economic divide, supporting local youth and their families to gear up for the year ahead.
Our Veteran Mentors will deploy locally across 30+ cities in the first two weeks of August. We will reach nearly 2,500 youth with necessary supplies and our Character Does Matter youth mentorship program, powered by Under Armour.
