  • About | ImYoungAndEmpowered

    Elise Carey - Founder/Director/President Why I founded I'm Young And Empowered, Inc. My father Wilbur passed on due to lung cancer Christmas 2017. He deteriorated very quickly, was placed in hospice care and passed one week later. My father suffered an epic case of bullying as a frail and terminally ill man at the hands of someone who proclaimed her love for him. My father did not live long enough for us to bring in help or protection. A secret wedding took place just 5 days before he passed. None of his children who were in the vicinity were invited. After my father's death, my 2 siblings and I discovered there was a fraud in play. Took us close to 2 years to fight an estate case to expose the fraud upon my father's estate. Witnessing my father, who once was a boxer, very strong, no nonsense and a very proud man, suffer the terrible toll cancer takes on even the strongest person broke my heart. I decided to take everything he left me (that was almost stolen) and pour it into a way to carry on his legacy, by Paying It Forward in an effort to empower others, especially children. Seeing story after story of cases of bullying hit me close to home. I decided to try to use as much of my life experience, heart-soul and pour it into a cause. We started as just that, a "cause" on March 28th, 2019. We were then granted our 501(c)3 award letter June 2019. Since then we have reached many families, schools, community centers and youth organizations across the country. Within months of our start up as a cause, it became apparent the need to address economic undercurrents as an integral part of our organizational outreach. My Story I am from a disadvantaged family myself and have encountered many hardships beginning at a young age including; racial/cultural discrimination, pre-teen homelessness, trafficking, teenage parenthood, domestic violence, incarceration and mental health struggles. I am thankful for a very supportive husband, adult children who have achieved self sufficiency and are now wonderful parents to my grandchildren and many, many years of cognitive behavioral therapy. All of which allows me to utilize my unique experience based perspective and a deep understanding of the paradox of challenges faced by youth and their families. We work to holistically address the myriad of socio-economic undercurrents that can lead to disparities, economic hardship and inequality. My personal goal is to create generational, long lasting positive impacts to reduce inequality and economic hardship. All while promoting integrity, compassion and unity and addressing the economic challenges that greatly exacerbate sociological and societal challenges.
