Empower You Edutainment is a non-profit organization that obtained its 501(c)(3) in 2016. Empower You Edutainment consists of a team of educators who happens to be artists that used their performing arts background to provide theatre, dance, and music to increase resilience, empowerment, and wellness for both youth and young adults. Our mission statement is to break down social/ economic barriers, empower, educate, and transform the lives of the voiceless through song, interpretive dance, spoken word, music, improvisation, and theater. From our humble beginnings, we have provided the Inland Empire with community theatre that focuses on social issues.

How We Differ From Other Organizations
Empower You Edutainment philosophy is that art is a form of healing. Our motto, "Each one teach one," an African proverb that emphasizes that no one is alone; everyone will embark on their journey together without failure because they will inspire and encourage each other along the way. Our goal is to provide wellness by creating a sense of self through advocacy, training, and Edutainment. Our organization offers a year-round after school performing arts program that provides healing energy and emotional release to youth and young adults' most vulnerable population by offering free classes in the performing arts.
