Founder & CEO / Mentor

I would say my love for children comes from a lifetime of loneliness, lol. Growing up the only child isn't as amusing as most would assume. What I can say, is that being the only child has taught me to appreciate and value others.

I am a loving wife and mother to SIX beautiful children who consume a great chunk of my time. Before having children and entering the childcare field I was a mentor to troubled youth which encouraged me to become a foster parent to therapeutic children.

My main goal for Young & Motivated inc. is to is UPLIFT, SUPPORT, AND INSPIRE the youth today. There is so much more to the world than Instagram and Tiktok's, the children just need the exposure!

 

By providing outreach services to the youth in the community with efforts to build character, compassion, and accountability, Young & Motivated inc. will aide in the physical and emotional growth...one child at a time.

Carmen

Lead Fundraiser Manager / Mentor

My name is Carmen! I am a young mother of 2 school aged boys. I’ve always been the person people refer to as the "people person"... When it comes to kids, they love me! 

 

Since becoming an adult, I’ve always felt like I should reach out to children and young adults to “school” them on things they may face in their future as well as aid in positive decision making.

 

I'm the “cool aunt” and I like to call myself the non-judgmental friend. I listen to understand! I don’t fault or place blame, but I will keep things real and raw.

 

I hope to reach the minds of the young, keeping them out of trouble, trying to guide them, and help them learn the things I picked up later in my adult life.

Hey there, I’m Arianna! I started dancing at 5 years old and trained in several areas of dance - band, lyrical, ballet, hip-hop, and majorette.  My accolades include team captain, first/second place in national dance competitions, coaching, and placing top 5 in a soloist.  

 

My experience extends beyond dance as I currently work with school-aged children in a childcare facility and plan to major in business administration once I start my college journey. I will continue my passion for dance through teachings and training the youth with this organization.

My goal at Young & Motivated inc. is to guide and inspire young adults to be everything they could ever imagine. I want dancing to be a phenomenal experience - regardless of if it’s for, exercise, self-confidence, feeling good or preparation for a career.
