Who We Are

Empowered Voices is a values-driven small business that offers prevention education workshops that aim to improve interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. We encourage participants to engage in problem-solving through scripted and improvised true-to-life scenarios.  Our workshops work with both small and large groups and teach new and innovative ways to handle uncomfortable situations. We aim to develop effective communication skills by engaging participants in meaningful dialogue while encouraging critical thinking and providing a safe environment where participants have the opportunity to speak about real world issues and learn new skills.

Vision

We strive to be the leader in collaborative education. 

Mission
