NFL YET Grant Program

NFL YET Grant Program

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Youth Education Towns (YETs) are the education enrichment centers that serve as legacies in Super Bowl host cities.  Launched with a $1 million Super Bowl Legacy Grant from the NFL that is matched by the Super Bowl Host Committee, a non-profit entity with a 10-year operating and fundraising plan is established in order to ensure that each YET site remains viable in the community and is able to serve its youth long after the Super Bowl has been played.


The mission of the resulting YET initiative is to enrich the connections between children, staff, volunteers and the diverse communities they serve.  Individual YET locations are united and committed to making a positive and lasting difference in the lives of children as members of the larger collective.  In addition to the $1 million Super Bowl Legacy Grant, the NFL has supported NFL-identified programming at existing NFL YETs across the initiative.


Such programming has allowed the NFL to extend the fitness goals of NFL PLAY 60 into the YET initiative by providing for the installation and programmatic integration of the interactive NFL Play Action Fitness Training Systems (powered by HOPSports) at all YET locations; fitness rooms and programs in conjunction with NFL teams in NFLYET cities; and flag football tournaments across the country.
