Hope for the Youth: Inspire Your Daughters and Sons Inc. on Giving Children Endless Opportunities

On a mission to save the youth, Inspire Your Daughters and Sons Inc. has established itself as a family and children advocacy nonprofit organization 501c(3) built around the four pillars of faith, family, fun, and finance. Since its inception, this purpose-driven entity has been going the extra mile to cater to the needs of families with children, hoping to give them more in life.

The organization’s Four F Framework was designed to mend broken relationships, build stronger bonds with social and emotional learning tools, and produce generational wealth in a fun and engaging way. This also cultivates a sense of freedom that encourages members to express themselves and speak their truths. 

Behind the purpose-driven initiatives of Inspire Your Daughters and Sons Inc. is the organization’s CEO and esteemed founder, Yalanda Barber-Sweney. The visionary leader is acclaimed for being the first African-American woman to create a female and male toy curated as African American Foster Care Heroes—Princess Yaya and King James. 

“Our masterclasses, training, courses and Facebook Community are centered around this framework. Inspire Your Daughters and Sons partner and collaborate with other CEOs, founders, small business owners, corporations, and government entities,” Yalanda Barber-Sweney said. 

In the same interview, the founder also talked about the most recent program that Inspire Your Daughters and Sons Inc. came up with. “Our latest program, Kreative Master Minds, allows young ones who are nine to nineteen years old to find their voice and build confidence through arts and culture, specifically creative writing.”

Kreative Master Minds is a creative writing program that focuses on enrichment activities promoting core areas such as mindfulness, self-esteem, identity, writing, and culture. Yalanda Barber-Sweney explained that this movement aims to cultivate an environment that encourages inner-city youth to become a writer and possibly an author. 

Equipped with the goal of fostering growth and enabling success, Kreative Master Mind is eager to give participants the opportunity to learn more about the process of writing a children’s book. This exposure will allow them to build their confidence as they find their voice in creative writing and come up with their own published work. In addition, participants of the program will also get the chance to become pen pals with other youth in Africa. 

Within the next five years, Inspire Your Daughters and Sons Inc. envisions itself building a school and putting up some houses in Africa for families with children. The organization also aims to establish an art and culture studio with a warehouse functionality in Atlanta.

“We will expand to teach and support all of the visual arts—dance, drama, photography, drawing, music, and literature. We will also conduct yearly visits to all seven wonders of the world and to different parts of Africa, exposing our youth to a vast array of cultures,” Yalanda Barber-Sweney explained. 

As a trailblazing community empowering children across the globe, Inspire Your Daughters and Sons Inc. serves as a source of inspiration and support for many. The organization wants to send the message that there are still people who care. More than anything, it wants to instill hope in the youth and fuel their drive to be better.
