Community and connection
At Empowered Kids, we believe the wider community serves an important role by acting as a support system to children and families. Wherever possible, we partner with local businesses and groups to provide additional services and support where children have the opportunity to make meaningful connections and engage in the community. Each of our partners adds expertise and enthusiasm, and of course shares a passion for helping children find their strengths, just like we do!
This is our chance to shine a light on them…
