Meet Kia Green, a visionary native of Philadelphia whose journey is a testament to the transformative power of dedication, compassion, and unwavering commitment to community empowerment. With over 15 years of invaluable experience in the nonprofit sector, Kia Green is a beacon of hope and inspiration, dedicated to shaping a brighter future for at-risk and underserved youth.
Born with an innate drive to lead, serve, and inspire, Kia's roots are firmly grounded in Philadelphia's dynamic cultural landscape. Having witnessed firsthand the challenges that beset inner-city neighborhoods, she recognized the profound impact environment can have on shaping one's future. Fueled by a deep-seated love for youth and their well-being, Kia embarked on a remarkable journey that led her to start Building Futures Incorporated in 2010.
Kia's remarkable path includes a foundation of artistic expression, as she honed her skills at The Philadelphia High School for Creative & Performing Arts, mastering Classical Ballet, Modern, Jazz, and African dance. Continuing her educational journey at Temple University, she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Marketing. Kia's pursuit of knowledge and commitment to her cause took her to Southern California, where she attained a Master of Nonprofit Management and Leadership degree with distinction.
Her life's calling became clear through her lived experiences and unyielding faith. Kia's upbringing in a challenging environment motivated her to dedicate her life to uplifting "at-risk" youth, particularly those of color. Her dream of offering life enrichment programs as a vehicle for advancement materialized into Building Futures Incorporated, a charitable 501(c)(3) tax-exempt community-based nonprofit organization.
Building Futures Inc. (BFI) stands as a beacon of transformation, focusing on empowering youth and young adults through mobile self-development programs and mentoring services. Kia's belief in the potential for change through education, mentorship, and positive role models has driven her to establish a platform that not only equips young individuals with tools for success but also cultivates the next generation of leaders.
Kia's dedication transcends words. She's committed not only her time but her entire life to the service of others, especially those most in need. Her unwavering belief in the power of exposing youth to accomplished professionals who share a commitment to social impact has fueled her mission. Through Building Futures Incorporated, Kia seeks to bridge gaps, build partnerships, and empower economically disadvantaged residents by providing them access to resources, services, and opportunities.
Kia Green's story is an example where dedication, faith, education and determination converge to create a force for positive change. Her motto "BE BOLD. BE BRAVE. BE INSPIRED!" encapsulates the spirit with which she navigates her journey and encourages others to do the same. With Kia at the helm, Building Futures Incorporated is not just an organization; it's a movement to create a brighter, more equitable future for all.
