EmpowerED – Young Men’s Leadership Club (Oct – June), Ages 11 – 13 & 14 – 18 @ Virtual and In-Person
Mar 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

This program aims to empower middle and high school boys to make healthy life choices that will contribute to their own well-being, the wellbeing of their communities and the world at large. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to define who they are, regardless of society’s definition. They will reflect on their innate strengths. To do this, they will explore a variety of coming of age questions (Who am I? What’s my purpose?  How can I become an agent of change? What’s stopping me?) and deeply resolve these issues through engagement in creative activities and social action.

NECS will incorporate the Live Respect Curriculum from A Call to Men in order to explore the concept of healthy masculinity. Youth will engage in creative activities such as spoken word, mindfulness activities, photography and more in order to find creative ways to cope with the challenges they may face. Trained mentors will work with the boys throughout the year.
