What Do We Do?
From mentoring to motivational speaking, we aim to inspire youth to be leaders in their communities.
It Starts With You.
Our programs are made possible by passionate volunteers and sponsors that want to see our youth thrive!
We bring events to our community that make an impact. We would love to have you join us at our next event!
Y&E Blood drive
Our goal was to collect 30 pints of bloods, but we ended with 45 pints! That will potentially save 135 lives. Today was a huge success! Thank you for partnering with us, American Red Cross!
Need to feed
Y&E has partnered with community organizations and agencies to provide meals to children, adults, and entire families during these heightened times of uncertainty. The system we’ve put in place thrives on the existing works of food providers, while also being an additional resource the community can lean on for food.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
Easter basket event
We gave out 300+ Easter baskets! It was great to see all the smiling faces. Thank you to everyone that helped us make this happen!
Christmas with coaches
Our first annual Christmas with Coaches was a success! A few organizations and several awesome people in our community came together to help us provide a free basketball clinic, Christmas dinner, and gifts to 55 middle school boys in our community. Thank you to Brent L. Owen, University of Southern Indiana men’s basketball team, volunteers, and everyone that played a role in making today a success.
Y&E Annual Toy Drive
The Y&E Community Toy Drive brought in more than 6,000 donations and helped over 1,000 families! Taking over Toys for Tots this year wasn’t easy, but we were able to bless so many families because of our very own community coming together. Thank you to everyone that played a part in making this happen!
Boys to men conference
The Boys to Men Conference features special motivational and inspirational sessions, training seminars and speakers that focus on preparing our young males for manhood and to be positive forces of change and elevation for our communities and the world.
We partner with Men's Wearhouse to provide suits, dress shirts, ties, and shoes to young men.
