Erika Johns
Founder and Director of Generation Y
Erika founded Generation Y based on the need she saw for her own 8 year daughter to have a safe place where she can go anytime to meet new friends, learn ways to lead a healthier happier life and just have fun!
Growing up in Texas, Erika first discovered her ability and love for sports. While attending Rumsey Hall and Loomis Chaffee where she played Varsity Soccer, Softball, and Volleyball, she also discovered her love for the East Coast. After attending Texas Tech University and studying Restaurant Hotel and Institutional Management she decided to move to West Hartford permanently. While working in the Real Estate field here in Connecticut, Erika decided to start her own successful Real Estate Company nearly 3 years ago. Along with her passion for her business and daughter, she also thrives on helping people especially kids. Nearly 2 years after starting her own company she made another big commitment and joined the Big Brother/Big Sister Organization. She is now very proud to be a Big Sister to a 12 year old young woman named Brittany. Initially it was to make a positive impact on Brittany’s life by showing her how she has overcome huge obstacles in life to become the strong confident businesswoman and mother she is but now not only is Brittany considered to be part of her family but her mother as well. She has also been involved in the West Hartford community by volunteering her time at her daughter’s school, coaching WHGSL softball, and much more. After discussing the need for a place for our kids with other parents it was decided, she was going to make it happen. It was then that Generation Y was created. The name is derived from birthdates ranging from 1983-2003, the generation that follows Generation X, which is said to have the highest obesity rates in history and lack the most basic of life skills. Erika knows that Generation Y can fill the gap that today’s parents and kids have. Kids need a place where they can learn exercises, nutrition tips, feel safe to discuss hot topics like bullying and dating, while also learning other important life skills and having fun. Parents need time to themselves now more than ever in order to be the best parents they can be and we all know that is not easy to get. Generation Y is here to save the day, whether it is for a few hours a week or Friday date night, we are here for you!
