We specialize in helping youth who continue /continued to struggle despite participating in other school or community– based counseling programs. DC Youth Empowerment, target teens who were once considered troubled or at risk we help them gain the skills, knowledge and application that are necessary to become productive and valuable contributors in society, but most importantly personally successful and socially responsible.
The need for a program addressing the issues of poverty, illiteracy, academic success, emotional stability, crime, teen pregnancy, and drug abuse that plague our youth is
indisputable. A graduation rate of less than 50%, an illiteracy rate of 36%-50%, 23% of at risk youth families with an income below 50% of the poverty level, with an additional 24% of
children under 13 who live in families of the working poor under poverty level. A breakdown of ages and graduation is also equally appalling: 29% of the at risk are below poverty level, of the high school graduates 17.2% from single parent families are below poverty level, and of those who did not graduate 46.9% are below poverty level.
The employment picture remains grim for teenagers and young adults and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that youth unemployment is more than double the national unemployment rate. “They deserve better. I ask my colleagues to support this urgently needed targeted assistance for young, unemployed Americans. "Congresswoman Elanor Holmes Norton" *Washington Informer 4/6/2016, Norton Seeks to Reduce Black Youth Unemployment
