The Empowered Living Academy is a safe place for young women who may have come out of a life of exploitation and/or are at risk of exploitation. If you are a young woman who has experienced difficulty gaining employment due to life circumstances including poverty, sexual abuse, or trafficking, the Empowered Living Academy offers an opportunity to equip you for success!

This program is a great eye opener to the world and into a new life as an individual. You’re not judged for being who you are. Everyone here truly cares and are here to help. ~Career Readiness Participant
I enjoy how we have different people and volunteers come in and express their work and I learn something new about myself and information everyday! I Love It! I’m ready to go to work! ~Career Readiness Participant
