The Jackson In Action 83 Foundation, in partnership with the Florida Blue Foundation and the Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation, is proud to announce its newest program, "Mind Masters," a wellness workshop for rising middle schoolers. The inaugural event will feature a keynote address from international speaker and mental health advocate Nate Evans Jr., while distinguished psychologist and executive coach Dr. Nekeshia Hammond will address the parents of the youth during a morning session to provide them with tools to help them navigate their child’s emotional health. All parents will receive a copy of Dr. Hammond’s newest book Mindset Training: Conquer Your Mind and the Rest Will Follow. Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Ali Marpet, who is currently working on his doctorate in psychology, will also make a special guest appearance. In addition to the thought-provoking breakout sessions led by Evans and Frameworks of Tampa Bay, the youth will end the day with their choice of an interactive therapeutic session with options including yoga, art therapy, pet therapy, photography, or physical movement.

The event will mark the third anniversary of Vincent Jackson Day, honoring the legacy of our foundation's co-founder who passed away suddenly in 2021. August 3 was chosen to celebrate and remember the beloved man who proudly wore #83 during his NFL career.
