BMYD About Us

Welcome to BMYD!

Bright Minds Youth Development, Inc. (BMYD), is a nonprofit youth service organization in Jacksonville and incorporated in 2011 in the State of Florida. We received IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in early 2012.

About Us

We are passionate about helping youth to develop and grow into productive citizens. Statistics reveal that when youth are not able to capitalize on innate abilities they are at increased risk for school drop-out, lower literacy, unemployment and involvement with the criminal justice system.


Our vision is to cultivate young minds for excellence and success by providing opportunities, skills, experience, exposure and positive challenges for children, teens and young adults in Florida to improve their quality of life.


Our mission is to provide youth and young adults opportunities to explore and develop their talents, while gaining critical skills for leadership, education, health, work and beyond.
