The YOU Power Project



Virtual empowerment programs built to strengthen confidence, resilience and career clarity through the exploration of entrepreneurship

You know your child is a superstar…

But they feel more overwhelmed than inspired.

At the YOU Power Project, we’re helping students dream big and take action now through an innovative exploration of entrepreneurship.

Inspiring | Empowering | Equipping


We Believe:

✳ Your child or young adult deserves to know just how awesome and capable they are

✳ Students don’t have to wait until after secondary school to start living their dreams

✳ The workforce needs agile, creative, inspired thinkers

✳ Developing a diverse skill set is more important than memorizing facts

✳ All students should be able to adapt and critically consume content

Does Your Company or Organization
Want to Make an Impact?


We teach our students about the importance of “triple bottom line” businesses that measure their success by the impact they have on profits, people, and the planet. And we invite the incredible impact-focused businesses around us to show up for our students in a powerful way.

Sponsorship gives students the chance to develop their skills, learn about entrepreneurship, and prepare themselves to be an outstanding contributor to the workforce. Your donation has a direct impact on improving and empowering your future talent. 

If your company is interested in:

  • Supporting student empowerment
  • Equipping tomorrow’s workers with a diverse, agile skill set
  • Receiving positive marketing and being identified as an impact sponsor
  • Making sure more students have access to self-development and self-confidence building programs 

… then Sponsorship is the perfect opportunity!

Hi, I’m Jess! Founder of The YOU Power Project, Parent, Educator, + Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur

I believe in chasing your dream day, not a dream job title. And I’m passionate about helping today’s youth understand just how awesome and powerful they really are! Over the last decade, I built several successful businesses while working as a high school teacher and becoming a mom. I’ve renovated houses, run a thriving construction company, and served as a project manager to several different organizations. I’m never bored!

Helping today’s students uncover their gifts, talents, and skills – through the framework of entrepreneurship – is one of my greatest joys! I can’t wait to see what your child is capable of.


Is Your Student Ready to be Inspired, Empowered, and Equipped to Create a Life They Are Excited to Live?

We’re so excited to see what The YOU Power Project can help them achieve!
