We Inspire. We Cultivate. We Embrace

Young Black and Brilliant (YB&B) was established in January 2021 to build a sense of community among youth. Here, they can engage authentically in healthy peer interactions, build confidence and enhance their literacy skills.

We cultivate a love for reading and community by making our YB&B sessions fun and interactive through fun literary games, group discussions and taking our youth out on social events.  

Our Program offers...

Reading Enrichment Book Club
Life Skills and Enrichment Activities
Community Engagement

We model how youth can take ownership in their community through their participation in community activities, which teach the value of ownership, maintenance and  responsibility, and giving back to their community.
