Based in Hamilton, Empowerment Squared is a Canadian charity that works with communities to effect sustainable change through education, social skills and life long learning. Our mission is to empower less privileged communities through academic mentoring for youth and young adults, leadership development and supervised access to sports and recreation opportunities as an integrated strategy. We believe that lasting community change must come from within, and that real help means giving people the knowledge and tools to help themselves.Read More
