Most importantly, Scott Jackson emphasized, attendees to Next Level Top Up Stop Kidz Entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to support Keeping Families Connected’s Boyz N Blue & Girlz Too Kids & Teens Entrepreneurs.

“They are our leaders of tomorrow,” Scott said. “We are on a mission.”

A Dallas/Fort Worth-based nonprofit organization that Scott Jackson established in 2015, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.

“We believe that family matters most,” said a spokesperson for this thriving, flourishing nonprofit organization in a detailed overview at https://www.keepingfamilyconnected.org/.

A native of Houston who was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Scott Jackson is thoroughly convinced that her organization is steadily becoming a fixture throughout the region but, most importantly, she’s convinced it aligns solely with the purpose for which she was created.

Generally, Scott Jackson birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

“My life’s trials and tribulations set me up for this journey,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News during a March 2019 interview. “I lost my mom, my dad, and my only son to death, and I really feel that God was removing all of my leaning posts so that I could find my connection and my calling in life and, more so, to help me maximize my potential.”
