"Empowering One Youth At A Time"
Crystal EzumaExecutive Director & CEO
Ms Crystal as fondly called, views PrimeYEF as a divine calling. Crystal saw the need to start a youth program, after observing that a lot of kids are withdrawing from school, committing suicide, dropping out of sports due to lack of funds, and at the same time, receive long term sentences from the Court system. The most vivid experience was watching some kids that grew up in the same neighborhood as her kids become suicidal, including one that committed suicide at the 8th grade level. When it happened again at the 9th grade level, she thought, something must be done. Why should these kids change overnight, what's going on? Crystal realized that, in spite of childhood and adolescence changes, there is a resident good that must be tapped in each child. Instead of keeping calm, she decided to start a program that not only intervenes in the lives of kids across America, but as far as Africa.
Crystal is passionate about youths, and has volunteered hundreds of hours tutoring kids in Chemistry and Maths. As a double major graduate, specializing in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Georgia, Athens, USA; Crystal takes education seriously and encourages kids to strive to perfection. She is also an ardent business woman, an insurance executive, with a Masters of Business education, sitting at the board of several businesses. Crystal finds time out of her busy schedule to volunteer at PRIMEYEF, her church and other groups. She develops business programs, and HR training for youths, giving free advise on how to perform in an interview, and get hired in the process.
She has 3 children, who contribute immensely to the development of PRIMEYEF.
