About Jaylen D. Berry Foundation, inc.

The Mission

Did you know the state of Connecticut ranks #2 in the United States for having the highest income inequality?

The truth is the zip code in which our children go to school in shouldn’t determine the quality of their education or their access to opportunity.

That’s where we step in.

The Jaylen D. Berry Foundation’s mission is to help close this opportunity gap in the state of Connecticut by providing opportunities and resources to women, men & families from underrepresented backgrounds.

“It has been great working on a team at a relatively new foundation where Wesleyan Campus team members and interns have a significant amount of agency to pursue meaningful projects. It was also a great opportunity to get advice and leadership from many of the remarkable board members. ”
