The Youth Empowerment Program supports youth (males and females) aged 12-18 in developing leadership skills, critical awareness and opportunities to positively impact their own lives. The youth are involved in the design and implementation of the program activities, thereby “sharing power” with adults. The program assists youth to develop skills through exploration of teamwork, cultural diversity, critical thinking, peer relationships, family relationships, bullying, racism and other issues. The youth are introduced to positive role models through interaction with staff members and volunteers.
This program is funded by the Westminster College Foundation.
