Charles N. Cooper, Jr. (C.C)

Our Founder

The Youth Group, Inc., formerly known as Kids Kab, was founded by Community Leader, Charles N. Cooper, Jr in 2015. For 13 years, C.C. coached youth sports in Southampton County and began to develop relationships with families and connected with youth in a profound way. While working with kids through sports, C.C. found himself picking up multiple children for practice and taking them home again after practice was complete. Those same children needed meals, mentoring, and motivation and from his actions and with a vision to impact his community, Kids Kab was birthed.

In 2018, C.C.’s vision had expanded way passed transportation and turned into a complete dedication to the youth of the community through his partnerships, organizational sponsorship and area-wide volunteerism. Seeing and filling a need, Kids Kab transformed into The Youth Group, Inc. in order to help more children with more programming, and opportunities. 

Youth Group Programming

The Youth Group has several programs to meet the needs of our youth. Mobile Mentors, Skill-Fit, Summer Basketball, Winter Basketball, SoCo Youth Football, Kids of the Year and more!

We are making a huge impact!

What is our Community Saying?

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our community is saying:

YG Mobile Mentors is so helpful in our family. Getting my son back and forth is tough because I work so much. I am grateful that Mobile Mentors exists.

YG Basketball is awesome. Not only is my daughter being taught, but the certified refs really go the extra mile to help kids learn.

I don’t know where I would have been without YG Mobile Mentors. I was working three jobs to make ends meet, but my daughter still needed to get to practice.

I love getting picked up by C.C. Sometimes he takes us to get ice cream and he always listens when I talk. I look up to him.

Before YG Mobile Mentors, my son would come home upset because someone on the bus had bullied him. Now, he looks forward to getting picked up by C.C.

I really enjoy coaching in the YG Basketball League. I know we are making an impact in a positive and motivating way.
