The Morlon Greenwood Foundation, founded by former NFL player Morlon Greenwood in 2015, provides programming for students residing in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. This programming is designed to be creative, community-based, and of high quality, and focuses on academic, athletic, and intellectual skills for those children in the community that take part. This model is developed by partnering with elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as other similarly designed community organizations, throughout these disadvantaged communities in order to meet the unique needs of these students both inside and outside of the programswithinLasVegasValleyandacrosstheUnitedStates.Thegoaloftheseprogramsistodevelopleadershipandmentoringprogramstogivethechildrenwho participate, a guide that allows them to become upstanding members of their communities.
