Empower Kentucky
A Conference by Youth for Youth

Mission and Vision

Mission and Vision




to equip youth with the prevention-based strategies, skills, and tools they need to create safer, thriving, and more equitable communities in Kentucky and beyond.



We believe in creating spaces where all youth feel a sense of belonging and inclusion.

We believe that true community change cannot be achieved without centering racial justice and equity.

We believe that prevention is the key to ending sexual violence, suicide, and substance abuse in our Kentucky communities.

We believe in the power of youth to use their collective voices, creativity, leadership, innovation, and diverse experiences to change the world.
