HI, I'M Diarra!
I’m a business consultant with extensive knowledge in nonprofit development who’s passionate about youth development programming.
With over a decade of teaching experience in the Performing and Visual arts medium, I have seen firsthand what incredible effect the arts can have on a developing mind. I founded The Bailey Foundation to help children with food insecurity, community development and educational programs so that children and families could live up to their infinite potential.
I’m committed to helping those who want to serve their communities so they can see real change in the lives of the youth and underserved people all across this country. I know firsthand how incredibly difficult it can be to learn the techniques and strategies to produce a successful fundraiser, event, or program. These challenges can hurt a business or nonprofit’s chances of accomplishing its mission. Many struggle with fatigued donors or maintaining mutually beneficial partnerships, as well as having a board that is diverse in knowledge and perspective. I hope to help you avoid them so that you can do the good work you intend.
