Empower Simcoe made the difficult but necessary decision to place our Youth Programming on hold at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have remained in closure throughout lockdowns and stay at home orders in order to keep youth, their families, staff and volunteers safe. We have been busy behind the scenes getting ready to once again offer engaging and dynamic supports to youth in our community. Keep an eye on your inbox, and check back for more information soon!

Empower Simcoe has launched a new, fully inclusive youth program, featuring in-person Drop-ins & Virtual Nights for all youth! The only criteria to attend is that you must be a high school student.

Our Vision:

Empowering all Youth to lead meaningful lives through the celebration and development of their unique talents, abilities and individuality, recognizing the power of one and the strength of community.
