Who We Are

Our Community


we are the change.

Inner City Innovators was born from a need. A deep need to help the youth of communities, centered in the neighborhoods of West Palm Beach, Florida. 

With a rising crime rate, and shootings happening right and left, our Executive Director, Ricky Aiken, saw that the time for change wasn’t two years or ten years into the future, it was now.

And so it began, through mentorship and relationship building, Ricky set out to help build lasting connections with the young men in our community. Now, we are several years into the journey, we’ve added incredible team members, grown programs, and been blessed to partner with many of our local businesses and organizations.

We cannot do this without your support. Your financial contributions allow us to positively impart our communities daily and we’re grateful beyond measure. 

““The killing of our young brothers and sisters is over. It’s over. It’s done. And I’m proclaiming here a new summer in our community. Our summers will no longer be filled with gun violence and murder. Our summers will be filled with peace and priorities.”

- Ricky A.
