Who We Are
The mission of Empower Yourself is to create critical thinkers and problem solvers for the 21st century economy. We do this by offering a rigorous academic curriculum that focuses on financial and economic literacy, life skills, and the promotion of STEM fields and education.
Quote: To Every man there comes in his or her lifetime that special moment when he is tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique and fitted to his talents. What a tragedy, if that moment finds him unprepared and unqualified for the work that would be his finest hour.
We Need Your Support
Why We Are Unique
We combine a comprehensive, year-round, program that encourages students from middle through high school to think critically on how economics impacts their everyday lives and the world around them. We provide both academic and applied lessons, in combination with critical thinking and an exploration of STEM, so our students are equipped to become innovators and the future leaders of the world and their community.
We teach Behavioral Economics which studies the effects of Psychological, Cognitive, Emotional, cultural and social factors on the economic decisions of induvial and institutions and how those decisions vary and gives insight into human behavior and explain economic decision making.
Our students participate in a year-long STEM and financial/economic literacy program which culminates in state, regional and national competitions. Though our students learn critical thinking skills, they understand the systems that drive financial decisions.
Our former students have been accepted at some of the top colleges and universities in the country. Many come back to mentor and teach Empower Yourself summer program participants in conjunction with our corporate partners.
With a focus on performance excellence, Empower Yourself alumni are continuously preparing to fulfill their roles as corporate and global leaders. If your organization has internship positions available that will contribute to the professional growth of these future leaders, please contact us.
