Our Journey to Teen Empowerment

Empowering Minds began in 2006 and officially became an independent, public charity in 2012. We have offered different programs along the way, but our commitment to empowerment and youth leadership development has never wavered. Empowering Minds provides a way for youth to access world-class leadership training, and for individuals and corporations to play an active role in the education of young people through sponsorship and donations. Our flagship Teen Leadership Breakthrough program is currently offered to school boards across Alberta.


Our mission is to provide youth and educators alike with proven and innovative leadership programs that develop the confidence, motivation, and resilience necessary to thrive in today’s world.


We’ve established several values that define who we are as a company and as difference makers for the future — our teen leadership programs centre on the same values.

  • Value Based Leadership
  • Integrity
  • Empowerment
  • Active Citizenship
  • Self-Awareness
