While We Empower You rallies for citizens of legal voting age, it also recognizes the importance of education when it comes to improving the quality of life for future generations. In this respect, the organization has paired with inventive production teams to create educational content that appeals to today’s youth. In terms of television programming, We Empower You is currently working on a reality competition show for talented youth contestants. The pilot episode will introduce America to the young entrepreneurs as they compete for scholarships sponsored by Microsoft.
Youth Spark: An ongoing effort to supplement the needs of students whose interests are often overlooked by traditional educational institutions. Through the exciting YouthSpark initiative, Microsoft partners with nonprofit organizations such as We Empower You, schools, government programs and other businesses to make more computer science education courses, trainings and resources available. This project puts emphasis on educational opportunities that challenge the youth’s logic, computer training and problem-solving skills which are essential for young adults as they enter the real world.
Second Chance Through Entrepreneurship:This dynamic project creates paths to formal education for young formally incarcerated adults. With guided curriculum, mentorships and partnerships with prison programs, young adults find their footing in an environment that puts their skillsets to good use. The founders of We Empower You strongly believe that with focused training and support, these individuals can use their entrepreneurship skills to support themselves while contributing to the greater good of the community. As opposed to submitting themselves to the harsh critique of the job search market, We Empower You founders use their 30 years of entrepreneurship accomplishments and knowledge to help these individuals create new opportunities for themselves.
