Our mission is to provide youth and educators alike with proven and innovative leadership programs that develop the confidence, motivation, and resilience necessary to thrive in today’s world.
Empowering Minds has launched a new Teen Leadership program called The STEP Youth Profile Program! This program is an exciting way to integrate how students prefer to learn and how teachers can facilitate an educational environment that enhances, deepens, and provides authentic learning experiences for all. Based on Emergenetics theory, the STEP Youth Profile Program honours students through seven distinct thinking and behaviour attributes. The result is increased tolerance, motivation, engagement, self-awareness, and an ability to collaborate successfully in cognitively diverse teams and families.
Through our Teen Leadership Breakthrough Program and our subsequent On-Team Ambassador opportunities, youth experience learning in a new way. With a focus on social-emotional learning, our program challenges teens to be more resilient and aware of themselves and their relationships with others. Our program highlights the importance of goal-setting, effective self-management, and the value of leaving a positive impact on the world.
Partnering with High Schools and youth-focused organizations across the city, we’ve helped over 5,000 young people, providing them with world-class leadership experiences and instruction. We are an independent, public charity, relying on the support from schools, community initiatives, volunteers, donors, and corporate funding to bring our one-of-a-kind program to more and more teens.
