YMI Cultural Center 125 Years and Counting.

We are reaching out to the community to support us in bringing back the YMI.  The effort to restore the YMICC to its former glory will only succeed if we as a community come together to drive this initiative.

Now is the time!

The 18,000sq ft. the building has been lovingly preserved and will be fitted with more current equipment in certain areas in 2019. This fundraising campaign is to fully restore the YMICC without assuming any more debt but to remove any barriers to the long-term sustainability of the agency for future generations.

Moving Black Culture Forward…

The YMI Cultural Center elevates Black communities through cultural, economic and leadership development activities.
