Be EMPOWERED Program Mission


Our goal is to empower teens and youths with the knowledge they need to make healthy, safe decisions throughout their lives. We strive to guide students through positive thinking, effective communication, and self-reflection skills. This program welcomes middle and high school students of all genders, sexualities, cultures, and beliefs.
Be EMPOWERED Teen Program at WellCome Om Center

Workshops


Our workshop groups are safe, non-judgmental spaces for teens & youths only! We talk about important health topics such as self-worth, diversity, mental health, sexual health, peer pressure, & more. It’s a great place to ask those “weird” questions, vent about teen/youth struggles, learn relevant life skills, and make friends!
  • Attend one workshop per week located at the WellCome OM Center, 4242 Lake in the Woods Drive
  • New topic each week!
  • High School Students and Middle School Students Meet Separately
