Helping Youth Create POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE

Through The Arts, Community Based Learning and Leadership Opportunities

About Us

Empowerment Through the Years

The Lafayette Empowerment Center has been a part of the Lafayette community since the 1990s, originally operating under the name Project Yes. 

Through the evolution of the Empowerment Center, our commitment to nurturing a strong, vibrant youth culture has remained strong and highly effective. 

 

Today, we operate No-Cost after-school and summer programs serving youth of all ages in our local schools and community centers.

We are excited to announce that we are reinvigorating the popular and long-standing programs that we offer the Lafayette community!

2021-22 Programming

Serving Lafayette’s K-12 youth, our theme for the 2021-22 academic year is: Rebuilding Connection through Mental Health.

Our youth will be focusing on redefining “normal” after the trauma of COVID-19.

Through grants and financial donations from the community, all of our programs and projects are FREE for participating youth.
