YEBies is run by millennials who see diversity and inclusion not only as tools, but as essential catalysts in evolving culture, connecting communities, and pushing critical thought. Initially created as a blog in the summer of 2008, YEBies’ primary intention was to detail the experiences of young people of color across various subcultures and regions of the African Diaspora.  

Always evolving to please our audience and impact the current social climate, YEBies has morphed into a community of change agents who are taking initiative to directly impact their communities. Through meaningful dialogue and action in the streets, YEBies is cultivating a dynamic, inclusive community. Highlighting successes as well as addressing the issues, concerns, and plight of minorities and their allies is a priority for YEBies.

Our mission is to connect change agents with incentivized opportunities to directly affect their communitiesEveryday people become change agents when they get involved and connect with one another through various volunteer opportunities, socials, and regional meet-ups. As we grow into a more global social enterprise, one of our foremost goals is to tap into the resources of the diverse communities in which we reside. Together we can change the world, together #WeAreYEBies

Impact

 

We support our communities by working with organizations that specialize in access to quality food, educational resources, and functional neighborhood spaces.  We believe that improvement in these areas is essential to the strength and development of each of our communities.

Minority Education

Greater educational opportunities for young people of color is a YEBies cornerstone. YEBies partners with organizations that increase high school graduation rates, as well as the number of qualified minority students applying, getting accepted to, and attending colleges and universities.

Healthy Food Access

Data shows that there is a direct correlation between lack of a healthy, balanced diet and inability to achieve peak mental and physical performance. YEBies wants to work with organizations that help provide access to healthier options.

Urban Renewal

Communal spaces and activities give residents opportunities to engage and collaborate with one another in their neighborhoods. By working at a local community garden or helping to clean up trash in a local park, we help our eco system as well as create access to old and new spaces that are functional and aesthetically pleasing.
