Empowering Youth Through Every 1 Voice Matters


At Every 1 Voice Matters, we're dedicated to providing wrap-around services to at-risk youth and their families through community partnerships, mentorship, outreach, coaching, and our engaging Lil Herbie Series programs. Our mission is clear: to help kids break down communicative and social barriers such as stuttering, self-esteem issues, and bullying, ultimately improving their quality of life.


Community Outreach for Change: 

We're not just a nonprofit, we're a community outreach organization committed to changing lives. Through a variety of community and educational events, we aim to increase social awareness in all children while offering support and resources to at-risk youth. Each event provides a therapeutic social learning environment where children can flourish, be supported, and be loved, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to succeed.


Making Basic Needs Accessible:

In addition to our outreach efforts, we're actively involved in the Lowcountry community, providing accessible solutions to make basic needs affordable for families. Our network of support aims to alleviate feelings of helplessness and break the cycle of generational poverty throughout South Carolina, empowering families to thrive.

Empowering Through Education: 


Our products, including our book series, animated series, and coaching experiences featuring our mascot Lil' Herbie, are designed to equip kids with critical life skills. From building strong self-esteem and self-confidence to fostering empathy and understanding, our resources empower children to overcome challenges and succeed.

Together, we can empower, educate, and inspire kids worldwide.
