Empower You Edutainment
Who We Are
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.
