About Us

Our Story

Inspired by President Moses Tut's life experience as young student challenged with traditional institutional learning he decides to withdraw from college. Next facing the world without any connections as a transplant from out of state, very limited in access and referral due to his limited network, cemented by his undeveloped potential, Moses becomes the individual CYS strives to connect with today. Moving forward Moses connects with mentors, advisors and engages heavily in experiential learning as a volunteer with the Sioux Falls Diversity Council. Through time, development and revelation Moses decides his purpose to create the entity that could do for others what was done for him. Thus Conscious Youth Solution was born in his mind Summer 2015
