*Empowering Youth does not represent any government agency.
Are you a foster kid in the DFW area? Looking for a way to stay organized, set goals, and develop or enhance your life skills? Empowering Youth is here to help! Our resource hub is filled with helpful tools to empower you as you transition out of the foster care system. Experts from UT Southwestern Medical Center, Children's Health, Collin College, SMU Dedman School of Law, and other organizations carefully selected and reviewed all resources and advice provided in the app.
Resources are organized into 6 main categories: Health, Education, Job, Community, Finances, and Home & Life. Each resource is tagged with multiple keywords to make it easy to find the exact thing you're looking for. You can even add resources to your favorites for extra convenience!
Discover our large collection of “Things” to help you accomplish your objectives, including selecting a primary care doctor, applying to college, finding scholarships, writing your resume, understanding credit and taxes, and so much more! Our step-by-step guides provide all the information you need to succeed.
This app helps you store and manage your personal information and documents, including medical, dental, and vision insurance, immunization (vaccine) records, medications, addresses, ID's, and details of any healthcare providers you have visited.
Plus, you can upload motivational text or include links to uplifting websites or videos to help you feel better when you're feeling down.
Our only goal is to help you with yours. Empower Yourself and join us today!
