Empowerment Squared is a Canadian charity that works with communities to effect sustainable change through the development of educational pathways and social skills for youth. We aim to empower communities through academic mentoring for youth and young adults, leadership development, and supervised access to sports and recreation opportunities. Lasting community change must come from within, and real help means giving people the knowledge and tools to help themselves.

Working with various community partners, academic institutions, school boards, hundreds of diverse mentors and volunteers, Empowerment Squared is determined to break the cycle of poverty through access to education and the development of leadership skills.Read More
