international YOUTH EDUCATION & SPORTS FOUNDATION
"BUILDING BRIGHTER FUTURES THROUGH EDUCATION AND SPORTS"
The iYes Foundation is a Springdale, Arkansas based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the youth of Northwest Arkansas discover their passions and grow their world view through education and sports.
What does NWA look like once our vision is achieved?
A generation of global citizens who know their purpose and value as well as the value of every person.
Then make purposeful decisions to use their gifts and talents to influence their own families, their community and the world for better emotional, physical, spiritual, social, and intellectual health.
They understand servant leadership and seek opportunities to serve and mentor others in their circle of influence.
Health disparities will be reduced or eliminated. Social justice, equality and equity for ALL people will be a reality.
The iYes Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to helping the youth of our communities build brighter futures through education and sports.
Expose our youth and their families to opportunities and resources through education and sports that will enable them to pursue excellence, achieve their purpose and be empowered to make a difference themselves.
We will focus on the Whole Child – holistic health with a foundation of mentorship, communication and physical activity/sports.
Education is a critical tool to maximizing achievement so we will partner with local school districts to provide supplemental educational resources. We will personally build relationships with the teachers, students, and families of each school we work with to build brighter futures.
Sports and physical activity is a wonderful vehicle to guide us to a better understanding of our value and skills.
