Empowering Youth, Shaping Futures

 Welcome to the Powerhouse Youth Project!  


The Powerhouse Youth Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the next generation. Since our inception in 1994 in Nashville, Tennessee, we have been committed to impacting today’s youth in ways that will change the trajectory of their futures, particularly those at risk.

We believe that our youth are the nation's greatest asset. Through our innovative programs and strategies, we aim to engage and equip America’s youth for life after high school. Our signature initiative, the “Pathway to Purpose” strategy, is designed to guide young people in making informed, purposeful choices that will lead to successful and fulfilling lives.

 What We Offer

Creative Assemblies: Our full-school assemblies emphasize the Power of Choice, inspiring students to recognize and harness their potential.

Pathway to Purpose Strategy: A comprehensive approach that provides the tools and support necessary for students to navigate life after high school.

Mentorship Programs: Personalized mentorship from experienced professionals to guide students in their academic and career journeys.

Skill Development Workshops: Practical workshops on career planning, financial literacy, leadership, and life skills to prepare students for the future.

Networking Opportunities: Events that connect students with potential employers, mentors, and peers to build a strong support network.

Impacting the Future

 Our work is more than just support; it’s about making a lasting impact. By investing in our youth, we are investing in a brighter future for everyone. We’re proud to play a role in shaping the leaders, innovators, and change-makers of tomorrow.

 Join Us

Whether you are a student seeking guidance, a parent looking for resources, or a community member wanting to make a difference, the Powerhouse Youth Project welcomes you. Together, we can empower our youth to make choices that will lead to successful and meaningful lives.

Powerhouse Youth Project – Empowering the Next Generation, Shaping the Future


POWERHOUSE starts with 3 CORE values:

 * Powerhouse believes every
    student has a passion and
    a purpose.


* Second, we believe everyone 
   needs someone in their life to
   achieve their purpose.


* And finally, we believe,
  "Every choice will cost
    you something!"
