The Youth Empowerment Workshops improves and impacts the lives of youth by bringing about a positive cultural change through science, technology, engineering & math (STEM), workshops, arts, creativity and fun. We host annual Youth Empowerement Summits (Y.E.S. "It's a Youth Thang") througout the District of Columbia.
