About Us


Empowered Youth (EY) is a  501c3 public not-for-profit  organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of inner-city, at-risk youth. We serve young men between the ages of 12 and 21, most of whom have been referred to us by the Department of Juvenile Justice.

Our comprehensive 2-phase program offers resources and opportunity to help our  youth become contributing members of their families and Ambassadors of Change in their communities.

We provide:

  • Life and job-skills training
  • Employment opportunities
  • Character development
