EDUCATE TO LIBERATE! 

Hi. We're Start:Empowerment. A rapidly growing youth and BIPOC-led nonprofit at the nexus of climate education and environmental justice organizing. 

We provide high quality justice-centered environmental, climate, and political education skills-based training and grassroots support necessary for youth and communities of color to organize for climate and environmental justice. 

Our mission is to mobilize education and action to achieve social-environmental justice and liberation for all. 

Listen. Create. Impact. 

We want to work with you to transform your classroom, curricula, and communities; we have revolutionary services to help you acoomplish all of that and more!

Alongside teachers, organizers, and activists, we create learning experiences that lead to action. 

Through our public events and organizing work, we're fostering the next generation of climate change-makers! 

Since it's conception in 2019, Start:Empowerment is proud to have impacted 3,800+ students, youth, educators, and community organizers across New York and Texas.
