About Youth of America
Youth of America Week is a coordinated effort of all NFL Alumni chapters to participate simultaneously in youth-related community-service activities. Youth of America week dates back to 1982 when NFL Alumni chapters in 14 cities coordinated activities for local children. The following year, NFL alumnus and Congressman Jack Kemp introduced a resolution to proclaim Youth of America Week a national event. Congress passed the resolution unanimously, and President Reagan signed the bill into effect. For more information please visit www.nflalumni.org.
