This organization was founded by Andre Hursey who grew up living in Bloomington IL. Andre became involved with the Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington-Normal, the Western Ave After School Program, the Western Ave Teen Program, and the Linc Center. As of so, this helped him start his own nonprofit organization. A cool fun fact is that the name "Jule" came from the middle name of the founder by his aunt. The Jule foundation is a great way for kids to get help with their schoolwork but also to open their horizon to new beginnings. This organization is for students who are in sixth grade to seniors in high school, and they help the children in need with homework, give a chance for the children to show their talent, and even just being a listener.
