Creating Pathways Beyond Poverty for Parents and Children

When we work with parents and children together, we can strengthen the family unit. Ultimately, this approach helps break cycles of generational poverty.

In addition to creating spaces for families to spend constructive time together, we offer both parents and youth workshops and experiences to strengthen “protective factors”, including:

  • Family communication and boundary setting
  • Managing and avoiding peer pressure and risky behavior
  • Setting goals and accountability practices
  • Healthy conflict resolution strategies

We also host skill building sessions for youth and parents that cover everything from advocacy to study skills.

Furthermore, all EmpowerGenerations parents are offered professional support through our Career Education & Training Center.
