BEE 183 Young Black + Suburban Kids Founder, Deidre O’Neil

Deidre O’Neil Founder or YBSKids, a 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

We teach children about their rich history and those of different cultures, which helps them become more socially active, an essential part of a child’s development. Here at Y.B.S. Kids, your child will gain further knowledge, individual strength, perseverance, and the ability to embrace their own identity. Teaching children about other cultures and their own builds character and enables our children to believe and value the things that make them exceptional, confident, and proud. 

Our vision is to inspire children to become who they want to be, but more importantly, influence self-confidence and pride.

Young, Black, and Suburban Kids

Y.B.S. Kids provides programs and initiatives for children in grades 3-12, teaching outside the traditional classroom with an essential part of our identity, teaching necessary life skills that help them become successful and productive young adults.
