Given the opportunity, young people can be a driving force in creating positive change in their communities, their nations, and the world. With the right balance of challenge and support, youth are highly capable of designing solutions to the challenges they face daily.
Through his Youth Empowerment Program (YEP), Dr. Shields encourages, trains, supports, mentors, challenges, and mobilizes young people to “be the change” they want to see in their schools, universities, and communities. Using highly-relevant and research-based strategies, Dr. Shields consistently demonstrates that our youth can and will rise to the high levels of expectations we set for them.
