The Video at the top of this page is a profile of EP21.  Check it before reading below to see how you can help EP21 become a success!!!

San Antonio Teens:

EP21 helps teens prepare for life after high school.  If you want a scholarship or help getting into college, but don't have the time or experience to make it happen, you have come to the right place!  EmPowerment 21, a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), has established a program that can help you access internship opportunities and get valuable work and volunteer experience with local businesses & nonprofits, while learning how to get accepted into college and earn scholarships.  All San Antonio teens and parents are welcomed to attend!

San Antonio Businesses:

If you want to help San Antonio teens prepare for their future, now is the time.  You can become a community partner by sponsoring EP21 and helping local teens intern at companies while being taught valuable lessons to help them to get into college, fund their education, get much-needed college-prep assistance, and work experience.  Door prizes are always appreciated by our community partners!

San Antonio Volunteers:

If you want to help change America for the better, while mentoring and training

tomorrows future leaders, you should volunteer to join our team and help shape the future of San Antonio teens.  Many of them let money pass them by each year b/c they lack the knowledge on how to pay for college.  You can help them learn how, while keeping them busy and off the streets with a goal of academic success.
