Youth Empowerment has been a part of the Teen Center since 1993. It was started by the coordinator at the time to increase community involvement projects for participants at the Teen Center. Through the years the group has tackled many projects such as a disability awareness spring carnival, pet adoptions, renovation of the Teen Center patio, murals, volunteering at the annual City Dr. King event, and community forums with elected officials and many more. We look for students that want to be empowered by the act of giving. Students may receive service learning hours during regular schedule planning meetings and participation in events. Student must be in middle or high school to join and a Teen Center member.
