Our Mission

Our mission is to foster personal growth and positive social interactions amongst youth through literature, discussions, and social events.

Young Black and Brilliant is a 501c3 nonprofit organization designed to build community and cultivate reading. We provide a safe and welcoming environment where young people can gain life skills and feel empowered and supported.

Book clubs and structured literacy programs are proven strategies that drive youth confidence and  remove barriers to learning. Research supports the fact that students’ reading skills improve when they work with peers in structured reading activities. (Greenwood, Delquadri, & Hall, 1989; Rosenshine & Meister, 1994; Stevens, Madden, Slavin, & Famish, 1987).

If you believe in the power of books and how transformative and positively influential they are, then embark upon this journey with us. 
Thank you to our partners, sponsors and donors. None of our efforts would be possible without you!
