What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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.
