Youth Kingdom Development (Y.K.D.) is a 501 c (3) non-profit organization aimed to provide young people a firm foundational opportunity to learn valuable life skills through educational, community service, and sports programs designed to improve their quality of life. The Y.K.D. staff has devoted their time and resources to create an organization unlike any other that focus around the development and well-being of our youth involved in the program.
The Y.K.D. program evolved out of a youth recreational basketball team consisting of 9 & 10 year olds at that time. After the end of a successful recreational league season with the team, we decided to compete in local travel basketball tournaments.
The following year we expanded to two competitive travel teams and installed a community outreach program. During this time, we wanted to separate ourselves from being known as just another youth sports club and started broadening the vision by developing other programs within the organization to better serve the whole person of our youth in the areas of education and health & wellness. With this vision in place, the program has served over 80 participants, boys & girls since 2014 and continues to grow.
Empowering and Inspiring young people to success through Academic Achievements, Athletics, and Community Service opportunities. To enhance the physical, mental, moral, social, and emotional well-being of the individual.
