Blossom Youth is 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to empower today’s African youth to become tomorrow's leaders through education, athletics, art, mentorship, and leadership.
"I truly believe that Blossom Youth's mission is to improve lives, bring hope, and make people believe in themselves again."
Blossom Youth has several objectives. Education, Athletics, community Lifting and leadership programs. Our hope is to not just provide better opportunities for kids after high school graduation, but also to educate parents, teachers, and coaches to ensure they have the knowledge and tools to lead the kids. A focus on youth development and strategic system building will be an important stepping stone to our success.
Blossom Youth was founded in 2018 with a goal to empower youth and families through sports, leadership, and education. Since then we have hosted several sports leadership camps in Cameroon and Ivory Coast, and are currently looking to expand into Kenya, Gabon, and other African countries.
We also place a large focus on giving back to the communities we serve, as our founder, Yannick Formbor, cites community as the core of his upbringing, Trinity Orphanage is a women's shelter and orphanage in Douala, Cameroon. In our partnership, we have been able to provide them a new freezer, stove, refrigerator, and ceiling fans to improve the conditions of the facility. We've also worked to continually supply food, clothing, bill support, and educational resources.
Currently, Blossom Youth operates out of York, PA and we continue to find opportunities to give back and an aim to make a bigger impact every day.
