We Are Funded By Caring Organizations

& Individuals Like You

Youth Empowerment, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization that began as a ministry of Tanner’s Grove United Methodist Church, local businesses and community agencies that wrote a grant to Duke Endowment for programs in the southern part of Rutherford County and was funded in 1999. In 2000 the agency applied for Non-Profit status and became a separate organization providing services all over Rutherford County.  Since then we have gained support from other sources including: private and corporate foundations, local businesses, civic clubs, churches, individuals, the United Way, the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council and the Governor’s Crime Commission. Your gift can help us continue to offer this vital ministry to our county’s youth.
For information on our organization and the work we do, or to make a donation, please contact our office. We’re proud of the work Youth Empowerment does to help the youth in Rutherford County and we’d be proud to have you partner with us in continuing these efforts.
