History of World Youth Empowerment

Established in 1999 as a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization, WYE (World Youth Empowerment), exists to encourage, educate, motivate and challenge youth to reach their highest potential as we develop their self esteem, self worth, and enhance the quality of leadership skills.  We serve at risk youth between the ages of 12-18 years old, focusing on motivation, training and experiential learning to guide them to higher education, employment and positive life choices.

We want to encourage youth to take active roles as community leaders and social entrepreneurs.  With these skills they can build strong community ties, guiding them to make positive life choices and enrich the community by forging future leadership roles.


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
