The Inaugural Induction Ceremony for the
Youth For Tomorrow Hall of Fame


Coach Joe Gibbs
3-Time NFL Super Bowl Champion Head Coach, 5-Time NASCAR Champion and Founder & Chairman of Youth For Tomorrow

We are on the cusp of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Youth For Tomorrow’s charter. What started as one small youth home for boys has grown to include 11 residential homes for boys and girls; an accredited secondary school; special therapeutic programs including those for teenage mothers and girls rescued from criminal sex trafficking rings; and 6 regional offices providing outpatient mental health counseling and behavioral health services to children and adults.

These successes would never be realized had it not been for the vision, passion, faith and leadership of one man: the great Coach Joe Gibbs. He saw a great need, and he decided to do something about it. And because of this, more than 26,000 lives have been changed over these past nearly-40 years.

At this year’s 33rd Annual Burgundy & Gold Banquet, we will honor him for his faithful leadership by inducting him as the very first honoree into the Youth For Tomorrow Hall of Fame. 

You won’t want to miss out on this memorable evening paying special tribute to a beloved sports icon and Godly servant leader who means so much to Youth For Tomorrow and to us all. 

The evening also will feature appearances by other Washington Redskins alumni and sports figures; the presentation of the 2021 Quarterback Club of Washington “Player of the Year” and “Courage Award”; an exciting live auction; and much more. 

Join the YFT community for an unforgettable night as we honor Coach Gibbs, celebrate Youth For Tomorrow’s long-standing relationship with the Washington Redskins (and now, the Washington Commanders), and raise funds to ensure Youth For Tomorrow’s mission remains strong for the next 40 years!

Please help us make this event one to remember—a true celebration of the heart and spirit that is Youth For Tomorrow. And help us keep our mission going strong for years to come. Save the date to join us and show your leadership by stepping forward as a sponsor.

More Information:

Youth For Tomorrow was founded by former Redskins Head Coach Joe Gibbs in 1986. His vision was to provide area teenage boys and girls who were experiencing traumatic circumstances with their families, many times abuse and neglect, a place to call home. While most youth are experiencing a life of hope and promise, our children have had frequent failures with family, school and peers -- in addition to unimaginable personal tragedies. 

"I believe there is nothing more important in life than what we leave behind in terms of how we have helped others.  Years from now no one wil remember who had a great season or who won the Super Bowl.  That's why Youth For Tomorrow is so important.  For each child that we help, we start a chain of good results because he or she will influence his or her own spouse and children and others around them.  And they will pass along what they have learned to others.  What will last in this world is what kind of influence we had on others and making a difference in the life of a child."  Coach Joe Gibbs
