I Can Be Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that develops programs and host events that emphasizes the importance of literacy in our youth.  In addition, the I Can Be foundation's events spotlights child entrepreneurs by providing a platform to showcase their businesses and/or foundations. 


I Can Be seeks to empower all children through the

I Can Be Books series. These books provide early exposure to both traditional and nontraditional careers to our youth. Furthermore, a mindset that there are no limits to whom our youth can be is developed. 

To establish a literacy-rich world.


To build communities that create solutions towards ending illiteracy amongst all youth.


​Our mission is to empower kids to be anything they want to be through our events as well as the I Can Be Books series. Our youth can identify themselves with the characters, leaving them further empowered.
