ABOUT US

I’m Young and Empowered, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Las Vegas, NV) is an educational and community service movement that is aimed at uprooting the plague of childhood suicides and depression being instigated by the pervasive bullying that our youth are experiencing in the always-on digital age. 

 

Our approach is to encourage the development of character in our youth that is founded on core principles of integrity, compassion, and unity as values supporting all humans – without discrimination for any gender, race, religion or other preferences or socio-economic status.

* Integrity - being whole and honorable as a person, being honest and doing the right thing even when nobody else is looking.

* Compassion - being as kind and considerate to others as ourselves, as brothers and sisters in our common humanity.

* Unity - being inclusive of all humans first and foremost, undivided by fears or artificial labels or the prejudices they can evoke.

Start with our young people, so that they can carry these qualities forward to future generations, while in the meantime also serving as models for the rest of us.

Using a variety of inspiring clothing, materials and awards that highlight, recognize and stimulate their continued participation, we encourage these traits by engaging youth in dialogue-based assemblies, interactive presentations and workshops, and pay-it-forward community service activities.

 

We especially encourage “Pay It Forward!” as a factor for developing these qualities – particularly through community service activities involving our youth in seasonal events and collections (such as back-to-school backpacks and supplies, canned foods, Thanksgiving baskets, winter coats and Christmas gifts, etc.) so that these items can be provided to anyone in our community locally or nationwide needing assistance. 

 

In just our first year of existence these engagements have already ranged from mailings to like-minded educators and parents spanning all demographics and persuasions in 35 states, assemblies for nearly 2000 middle school students in North Las Vegas, and a half-dozen special school-year and holiday- oriented community events.

Proud Pacers Champion!
