Meet Yong | Our Young Creators

Yong Pratt

Chief Dreamer, OYC

Hi, I’m Yong, a former professional dancer, world-traveler, and all-around curious soul.

My Story

Well hello there!

I’m Yong and it would be my absolute honor to be your partner with you on this adventure into parenting with technology! I’m on a mission to equip kids with real-world skills (like podcasting) so they can share their stories, learn to serve others, and fund their adventures in the process.

I a former professional dancer, world traveler, and all-around curious soul. I currently live at the base of the Ruby Mountains in Nevada with my husband, two dancing daughters, and a menagerie of creatures.

I’ve been unleashing Super Powers in kids of all ages since 2001 when I founded Academy of the Arts in Elko, NV which became Our Young Creators in January 2018.

As the Chief Dreamer at Our Young Creators, I now have the privilege of sharing our mission and our work with people across the globe on a number of platforms (60+ as of July 1).

In my spare time, I can be found getting artsy and snuggling up with my daughters, tromping through the gorgeous outdoors with our dog or shooting archery, enjoying a rare date night with my husband, or savoring a good book with a great cup of coffee.

What lights me up…

Learning & Growing

I’m a lifelong learner with a couple of degrees that I spent years earning–a Master of Science Degree in Kinesiology & Health from the University of Wyoming and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Education from the University of Nevada. But it wasn’t until I became a parent that the REAL learning began. I’m sure you know exactly what I mean…

Being a de-TECH-tive

I’ve been called the de-TECH-tive by many as one of my superpowers is seeing the possibilities and opportunities (that are usually in plain sight to me) inside a business that most owners often overlook

Teaching & Mentoring

As a teacher for 2 decades, I enjoy empowering business owners (kids included) by showing them how to strategically maximize their reach by repurposing – just call me the Queen of Repurposing.
