About Just C

Just C exists to provide young people with a tool box to be productive adults through resources, time, relationship building, and life skills through the power of being able to culturally connect.

Chenice Brown-Johnson founder of Just C, a volunteer run 501c3 organization is a native of Richmond, Virginia.  Chenice started Just C because she has experienced what youth of today are experiencing and understands the importance of having a trusted source in their lives to help fill in the gaps.

Chenice uses real life triumphs to mentor young people by connecting, empowering, and exposing them to a different outlook, and the possibilities and opportunities of life. Just C promotes healing and breaking barriers so that we all can flourish as a community.

“Experiences encourage a change in your mindset which changes emotions and outcomes. My Passion is showing young people that just because you have been through trauma, lived in a certain place, suffered some losses and made mistakes that you can bounce back and overcome just like I did, that’s JUST C."
