I’m Nicole and I’m am a full time pre-school teacher and the founder of the Empower Me Program Inc
What’s your WHY behind working with young people?
I want to empower young children to be confident within their own skin and be the best version of themselves. I want them to know that there is a whole world out there for them to seek out and explore. My role as a youth mentor is to provide them with opportunities and strategies to feel capable and confident and to go out and make their dreams happen.
