Empowering Minds is a Calgary-based charity, we believe in empowerment through experiential leadership development.  Our Teen Leadership Breakthrough program provides the opportunity experience learning in a new way. With hands-on processes students get to be leaders by identifying both their potential and their power to affect positive change in their lives.

Partnering with High Schools and youth-focused organizations across Calgary and the province of Alberta, we’ve helped over 5,000 young people, providing them with world-class leadership experiences and instruction.  We are a registered, public charity, relying on the support from schools, community initiatives, volunteers, local donors and corporate funding to bring our one-of-a-kind program to more and more youth.  We engaged the University of Calgary to do a 6 month impact study on our Teen Leadership Breakthrough program, once the study was concluded the profound results showed that our program has a long-lasting effect on the students themselves. The biggest outcome shown at the conclusion of the study was that students truly were more resilient in their family, school and personal lives. So, if you’re passionate about making a difference in the lives of the leaders of tomorrow, we invite you to join us in our mission to help student help themselves.
