We Are YEBies
A global community of change agents of color + allies.
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 opportunities to directly effect their communities while alleviating the growing cost of higher education for minority students. Everyday people become change agents when they get involved and connect with one another through various volunteer opportunities, happy hour 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
