Hello, I’m Bette Moore, owner of Youthful Diversions! For almost 40 years, this family-run operation has been providing fun and entertainment for groups, families, and businesses throughout the Metropolitan Washington area, including Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia. From our beginning, our focus has always been to provide a SAFE, FUN Diversion, with exceptional quality service and fun entertainment.

We started Youthful Diversions started in 1978, when my sister Nancy was in charge of her company picnic. She wanted someone to take care of the kids, ages 6 months to 12 years, while the adults were busy playing the games she had planned for them. We had so much fun bringing entertainment to the children and they loved it so much that they didn’t want to leave! We quickly realized that other companies could benefit from this type of service.

A small business that started with my husband Gerry and I, has expanded over the years to a much larger team of hand-picked fun professionals, including our 6 children- Patrick, Jenny, Rebecca, Bobby, Katie, and Molly. We actively work with our clients to develop a distinctive approach for each and every event and function. The willingness and ability of our staff to provide personal service and a customized palette of options has
helped ensure our success and longevity.

Youthful Diversions has developed unique bundles of services and products to satisfy our customers’ individual event needs and desires. Their positive feedback, and their appreciation of our innovative approach, has bolstered our reputation in the community, helping us gain a leadership role in the event planning and entertainment industry.

We look forward to continuing to serve the DMV area with fun and unique entertainment for years to come!
