Hello, and Welcome!
Empowered Youth is a skills-development training academy dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for young people across the Globe, regardless of their background. Our students are inspired, guided and mentored how to challenge their assumptions, broaden their aspirations and create successful careers and fulfilling lifestyles.
“At Empowered Youth we inspire a ‘willingness to learn’ and instill a ‘growth mind-set’ by equipping young people with the knowledge, tools and skills needed (mentally, emotionally and physically) to enhance their decision-making and ultimately, improve their quality of life. The lessons are delivered on a regular basis, in a fun, disruptive, impactful and measurable manner. Our wide range of custom-built skills-development training programmes are designed by experts to compliment ‘tradition education’ and are presented by role-models and heavily reliant on input from the youth. They are modern, exciting, content-rich, bite-sized chunks of life-transforming information.”

What We’ve Been Doing
Our Journey So Far
As a teenager who had no sense of direction, Empowered Youth has helped me find myself; to find my purpose, and has kept me out of trouble. They have taught me lessons in life that I couldn't possibly have learnt at schoolSthembiso Mciro

Ever since I enrolled into the Empowered Youth programme, my life has been filled with positivity. Through their lessons I've learned ways to gain confidence, courage and the ability to think about what I need to do next, in order to realise my hopes for the future.Q-Sha
Empowered Youth has inspired me to want more from life and their life skills programme has encouraged me to work harder for what I want. It has been such a major pleasure so far and I’ve had the BEST experience, and I know it will benefit me throughout my life!Jabulani Masinga
My honest feedback about the one I did is that it was a very educational, creative and extraordinary online course which I found myself glued up into when I was doing it.Mamello
I like how the Empowered Youth courses are structured and how Dene and Ms Candice Modiselle made it entertaining by acting it all out first and integrating it with questions in between.Miss Makhanya
