If you are ready to express yourself by sharing your creativity or knowledge with us, we would love to hear from you!

We are encouraging youth and young adults (ages 14-25) to share their passions with us by sending us their art or craft, an article they’ve written, or something else they’re highly passionate about and want to empower others with.

Write an Article

Do you have a topic you’re really passionate about and want to educate others on? Has mental health impacted you in a way that moves you to let others know they’re not alone? What would empower others?

The main focus of YouthEmpowerment.com is to elevate youth voices. We want you to feel empowered enough to create and share what the inner advocate in you wants to express with the world.

Some experiences, information, and content we want to normalize and see more of:

  • BIPOC Experiences

If you’re interested, this is a great way to build a portfolio for freelance writing on your resume! We would love to feature your writing. If you want to write for us but aren’t sure of what to write about, let’s brainstorm!

Share Something Else

Are there skills you have that you’d like to share with other youth and young adults? Do you want to interview members in your community that are leading impactful lives? Are there causes that you want more people to be aware of? How else can you share your voice?

If you have anything else that has been inspiring for you or would help you progress in a career path that you want to share, please reach out! There are endless ideas and ways to speak out and be heard. Let’s work together.
