Empowered Youth is an internationally
recognised skills-development Academy.
Often compared to a “modern-day finishing school”; Empowered Youth’s live and interactive coaching classes are hosted online at our state-of-the-art 3D virtual world where we teach and implement the “Prosperity Programme”- a carefully designed curriculum built on the four foundational pillars of Wealth, Health, Happiness and Success.
We bridge the gap of the transitional years between teenager and adult by developing essential real-world-readiness skills. Our coaches are subject-matter experts that inspire, guide and mentor young people to live their ultimate lives.
“Students learn the most important skills needed in life that aren’t taught by traditional education providers – They are handed a strategy for success as they are equipped with the abilities and self-belief to live extraordinary lives. In short, we unlock children’s potential and empower their growth into strong-minded and confident individuals- This transforms them into the most authentic versions of themselves, giving them an overwhelming advantage in life!”
-Dene Botha: Co-founder and CEO
