Empower4Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that serves to teach children to develop the skills needed to be healthy and productive in school, feel empowered to overcome challenges they face, and inspired to learn, grow and succeed the rest of their lives. They believe in the power of education to transform the minds and lives of children and that we can decrease the negative health impacts of homelessness on children by providing structured fitness activities and wellness education.
The values of the Empower4Life educators attempt to embody when working with children are enthusiasm, compassion, patience, wisdom, honesty, generosity, respect, responsibility, integrity and courage. These are the values they hope the children will emulate as they learn to be industrious and successful kids who are aware of the importance of balance and optimism as they pursue a lifetime of health and happiness.
