Paving the Way to a Brighter Future

Empowered LA stands as a Los Angeles based mentor program led by community leaders who believe that faith, guidance, and opportunity are key essentials to aligning passion with purpose. By strategically matching faith driven leaders with mentees, we strive to inspire the lives of children and young adults through a mentor approach designed to empower, motivate, and ensure that each mentee reaches their highest potential in life. We provide resources, support, and encouragement through activities, workshops, one-on-one, virtual, and group mentoring.



"Developing relationships with caring and supportive adults through mentoring is a key tool through which we can help these young people achieve their dream. The promise of a generation depends on our efforts to reconnect these you people to education and career opportunities." - Melody Barnes
