Our Mission


The purpose of YNOTU2, Inc. is to provide vocational rehabilitation, job and life skill development for disadvantage job seekers.  Disadvantaged job seekers are people with disabilities, youth-at-risk, single parents, ex-offenders, and military veterans.  Our programs will assist participants with improving their self-esteem, understanding their value, and developing their skills.  This will help the participants succeed.  Financial woes are often the #1 cause of ex-offender recidivism as well as hinders the ability of those with financial struggles to obtain education, trades, job training etc. In order to strengthen their opportunities of finding careers that provide good pay and job security.  The pressure of financial woes often forces individuals to take the first available job or in the case of an ex-offender to commit another offense. Through our program we intend to provide disadvantaged job seekers with the tools to turn their lives around while becoming a valuable member of society. 

Millions of people engage in the daily struggle to survive, grow, and develop in areas that will better their lives. If they can, Ynotu2

Our "Why?"


Through tragedy comes "Purpose"

 YNOTU2 was founded by Kimani Davis PKA Kasino, in honor of his brother Richard Phats Davis who was murdered in 2012. ”My brother felt hopeless facing life as an Ex Offender and returned to the lifestyle he had been engaged in for over 15 yrs. As a convicted felon, I transcended the title ex offender and dealt with the death of my brother, but I feel that many deserve the opportunity my brother did not have."  

These and stories like it of people who just need a second chance and some guidance to turn their lives around happen every day. It is our goal to help them re-write their story.
