In 2019, our nonprofit organization decided it was time for our young children in suburban communities to hear and discover their rich heritage. In today's society, our children are missing the essence of culture and unity, so it is more important than ever to educate our children through diversity, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch YBS Kids.
YBS Kids teaches children from all socio-economic groups about their rich history and the history of different cultures--which helps them create a more active social life, an essential part of a child's development. Here at YBS Kids, children and youth will gain cultural knowledge and necessary life skills. This knowledge helps build character and enables our young, Black, suburban kids to believe and value the things that make them exceptional, confident, and proud.
Our vision is to inspire children to become whom they want to be, but more importantly, influence self-confidence and pride.
By empowering our young children and youth this way, we empower our communities.
