Empowered Youth Philosophy
Our goal is for all children in this nation and globally to obtain a quality education regarding health and wellness. We seek to provide a bridge in the gap between basic diet and exercise education and true life skills and tools which can be utilized for improving health of the entire person.
We believe that the youth of our communities are the catalyst for change in an educational system that is lacking in essential knowledge to stop and reverse the negative health trends in the children of our society.
We instill leadership values, confidence, and a holistic skill set to empower the kids that we have the opportunity to teach and mentor. Our youth leaders are encouraged to share the positive impact of our program and the changes they have made in their lives with other friends, family, and social groups. These leaders share openly with personal passion, enthusiasm and a willingness to help other people in their lives.
We value the diversity of each individual, group, family, and culture that we work with. To effect change, it is necessary to acknowledge and embrace these differences with respect and openness, kindness and compassion, with a desire to educate all of our youth with equality.
It is with these characteristics that Empowered Youth will operate and persist with the intention of making a difference for and with the youth of our communities and nations.
