I am Yolanda Gibbs, the founder, and CEO of DeFined Empowerment, Inc. We are a mentoring organization for young people. At present, our current focus is young men. I cannot teach a boy to become a man yet I can be a bridge to nurture his direction. We will pair young men with mentors and internships of their choice. We will partner with entrepreneurs and businesses to bridge those relationships. In addition, we have collaborated with Above It All Counseling to encourage young people to positively use their voices and energy to navigate the course of their lives.


Teaching the importance of  Mental Health awareness and the impact it has to encourage their voices as they navigate life’s challenges. We want to ensure and secure a home, a space that creates an environment, an atmosphere of productivity, connectivity, and freedom for young people to learn and grow. I AM DeFined will also support the financing of equipment and supplies for our internship program; particularly, for young men not desiring post-secondary education.


Our outreach program Project DeFined would help young people navigate through life using lost technical skills such as brick masonry, painting, plumbing, and sewing to gain employment and life skills. The purpose is to transform mindsets and offer opportunities to young people not desiring college. DeFined Empowerment is dedicated to reaching one young person at a time! We are DeFined! We thank you in advance for your support and monetary contribution.

Yolanda Gibbs, on behalf of

DeFined Empowerment

Without technical skills in schools, African American youth not seeking post-secondary education have a less viable future. We will offer mentorship, internship, and apprenticeship with businesses to gain life skills, employment, and entrepreneurship. We are seeking monetary support for our cause.
