Welcome To Our Website

Empower Yourself is a year-long program whose goal is to educate underserved youth in urban areas in the fields of financial literacy, business and economics, so they can make informed financial and economic decisions. Our programs begin in middle school and continue through high school, where students gain practical business experience through our financial literacy classes, competitions, and investment club.
