About The Author John C (Jack) Johnson III Founder & CEO Jack was educated at Temple University, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Rutgers Law School, in Camden, New Jersey. In 1999, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue greater opportunities to provide Advocacy and Preventive Programmatic services for atrisk/ at-promise young persons, their families, and Justice Professionals embedded in the Juvenile Justice process in order to help facilitate its transcendence into the 21 st Century.

The Foundation has since relocated its headquarters to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and been expanded to include a three-tier mission. In addition to his work with the Foundation, Jack also served as an Adjunct Professor of Law & Business at National-Louis University of Atlanta (where he taught Political Science, Business & Legal Ethics, Labor & Employment Relations, and Critical Thinking courses to undergraduate and graduate level students).
