The program uses seats at Jaguars home games as incentives for agencies, young people and volunteer mentors to set and achieve ambitious but realistic goals. All Honor Rows youth earning a seat must fulfill a pledge to remain free from alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. In addition to seats, Honor Rows participants receive a free meal, a special T-shirt, hat, pledge card, certificate and recognition at the stadium during the game.
