Empowering Minds is a registered charity that provides youth leadership and mental wellness programming for teens aged 15 - 18. Working in collaboration with AB Schools and educators the need to provide youth with the tools to address issues of self confidence, self awareness, increased anxiety & depression, fear of rejection & isolation are needed more than ever. One of the programs we deliver is called Teen Leadership Breakthrough which is a 2.5 day/overnight immersive and experiential program whose measurable impacts are creating positive outcomes within the students schools, families and communities. We are expanding our programming to aboriginal youth groups this year.
Who Will it Benefit?
Our Teen Leadership Breakthrough program will benefit the first nations communities of Alberta. This new pilot program offering into the aboriginal community will benefit hundreds of youth who will now have access to this programming. With Empowering Minds new partnership with the Urban Society for Aboriginal Youth (USAY) we will have the ability to reach a new group of youth. Our new partnership will allow us to modify our programming to address the unique and complex challenges that aboriginal youth are facing with the goal to create positive long lasting impacts on how aboriginal youth view themselves and those around them.
