…empowering youth to create their own resources,
…reaching beyond their circumstances to be leaders of society
Empower Youth serves students in 5 school districts using the time, talent, and finances of the communities around them. We answer the needs of each school in a variety of ways leaving much room for volunteers to find a “niche” to facilitate lasting change in the life of a child.
Our recent article in the Clermont Sun:
Empower Youth has been a partner with Freestore Foodbank since we began our Summer Food Summer Fun Program in the summer of 2016. Freestore has allowed us to purchase many food items for our bags at a discount rate that has allowed us to now feed more than 600 students.
The Hunger Walk and 5K Run is another unique opportunity for Empower Youth by the Freestore Foodbank. For every walker/runner that signs up, we receive the entire amount of the registration fee!!! All of this money will be put towards our food bills. Last year, our food bills were over $12,000. Our goal is to raise $10,000 with our walkers/runners and their donations!
