Start: Empowerment is a BIPOC led social and environmental justice education non-profit working with schools, teachers, community organizations and leaders to implement justice-focused curriculum and programming. Our goal is to use education as a tool to fight for environmental justice and liberation for all.
But that's just the elevator pitch. What we really do fills a whole website. So click around.
You want to transform your classroom & curricuLA; we have the revolutionary services to help you accomplish all of that and more.
Our Guiding values
We take the time to understand the unique challenges each school and district leader faces and then tailor the Start:Empowerment (S:E) approach to satisfy the exact needs of the clients we support.
We specialize in infusing social and environmental justice themes across subject areas to introduce more diverse content, drive student growth, and generate community impact.
Start:Empowerment is working to create the equitable and sustainable world that we all want to live in.
A world where we are intentional about the way we operate and are conscious of the effects our decisions have on our communities. Thus, we aim to also collaborate and consult with activists, educators, and other local entities via the development of our client projects.
Because, ultimately, we believe that education can be used as a vehicle to break cycles of injustice.
