who we are

At the heart of it all

"We knew that Empower had to be a team made up of superheroes who each had their own special powers, so that when we came together we could change the world, one teachable moment at a time." Sue & Randy Yocum, founders

our vision

Each branch of Empower, Consulting and Connections, plays part in helping kids tap into their potential. We are all dedicated to our vision: Shaking up education and inspiring lifelong learners by empowering the whole child. In order to fulfill our vision and make the greatest impact, EEC must solidify its brand and make use of the digital world to announce all that we do.

our mission

Our mission is to make the hard things easy by modeling, showing, telling, sharing, and caring about our partners. We collectively know and believe that each and everychild deserves the best that education has to offer, and that if they are presented with the opportunity and support each child will grow their own way!

Interested in joining the team?

EEC’s challenges have evolved since we started in 2008. The educational landscape has gone through a transformation! As a result, effective PD is no longer a passive sit-and-get, and job-embedded supports are no longer optional. It is clear that our unique approach of meeting teachers and students where they are and building on their strengths is needed more now than ever.

Our work is not for the faint of heart! It’s tough working in the trenches with teachers and students to find practical solutions to their unique challenges.
