Excelsior Youth Center: Empower Youth Program

On June 6th and 7th iEmpathize has the privilege to work with the staff and students at Excelsior Youth Center to bring them the Empower Youth Program. The Empower Youth Prevention Program is an engaging, multimedia curriculum tool. We utilize film, photography and artifacts to train educators and students in at-risk zip codes to recognize and respond to trafficking and exploitive situations. The curriculum confronts root cause vulnerabilities while equipping students to actively respond, resulting in self and peer identification. We address potential victims as well as emerging pimp and demand culture. The Empower Youth Prevention Program trains and inspires students and educators to sustainably address exploitative situations in their school and surrounding neighborhoods.

Excelsior Youth Center is home for girls who come from some of the hardest backgrounds. Excelsior is committed to the treatment and education of young females to enhance their successful re-integration into their families and their communities.
