About eMpowerment Inc.

Student in Library

eMpowerment Inc. works directly with schools, local businesses, community leaders, and entrepreneurs to help students fulfill their postsecondary education and career goals. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, and we are committed to making that happen.

We achieve this by providing basic resources needed for student success, such as school supplies, personal items and financial assistance. We also facilitate college prep education, offer early exposure opportunities to various career fields, and reduce the financial barrier students face through the administration of scholarships and awards.

Our work is making a difference and we are helping to close the achievement gap for students from low-income families.

We are committed to continuing our work and helping even more students reach their dreams. If you are interested in supporting our mission, please donate or volunteer today. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of Tennessee students.
