Youth Development Foundation, Inc.
Hal Jackson’s Talented Teens International®
Scholarship Program

 “Promoting Culture & Education through the Performing Arts”

Program Overview

The Youth Development Foundation (YDF), a non-profit organization, designed and launched the Hal Jackson Talented Teens International (HJTTI) program in 1971 with the mission to promote education and culture through the arts. Over the years, HJTT has played an instrumental role in cultivating and supporting the academic achievement and artistic growth of over 25,000 underserved and impoverished young minority women between the ages of 13 to 17. Over 90% of the young women that participated in the HJTT program have gone on to graduate high school and college. YDF through the HJTT program operates in the United States, Caribbean, Canada and Africa impacting the lives of over 500 young women each year.

Founded in 1971 by Hal Jackson, legendary broadcaster and 2001 Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame inductee, HJTTI provides a support system for girls and encourages cross-cultural exchange and nurtures emerging talent. HJTTI provides the young ladies with training, awards educational scholarships and gives travel opportunities. This program is open to all ethnic groups with an emphasis on diversity and intercultural awareness.

State and country programs are held from January through June in approximately 30 states and 10 countries.  Area programs provide activities dedicated to youth, education and community involvement.  Additionally as a part of each program, girls participate in a series of training sessions and local programs where they are judged in categories demonstrating academic abilities, talent and stage presence.  State and country winners move on to the international event – Hal Jackson’s Talented Teens International® (HJTTI) to compete to become Miss Talented Teen International.

Area competition winners are convened to participate in the international week of activities. They tour the competition city; visit radio and/or television stations where they learn about operations behind the scenes in the media industry; visit restaurants to taste foods of different cultures; attend professional theatrical performances and ultimately rehearse for their appearance on stage. Winners have received over $1,500,000 in scholarships, prizes and inter-cultural trips abroad. Some of the individuals who have donated their time include Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin, Janet Jackson, Alicia Keys, Fantasia, Boyz II Men, Music, Denzel Washington, Robert Townsend, Brian McKnight and Michael Jackson.

The Youth Development Foundation, Inc. via Hal Jackson’s Talented Teens International® assists in preventing drug abuse and pregnancy among youth by developing self-esteem and confidence, which is essential for the positive development of young ladies and success in all aspects of their lives.

A number of HJTTI participants have become acclaimed professionals including Civic Court Judges, Award Winning Writers, Oscar Nominated Actresses, Principals and Deputy Borough Presidents. The YDF has a high success rate of young ladies graduating from college with participants and competition finalists completing undergraduate programs a Yale, Stanford, Columbia and NYU.
