Students, Empowering Students!

"We can all breathe a sigh of relief now that Jess Flynn is at the helm of the youth programming space.  Jess is a powerful leader, able to see new, better, improved, and more efficient ways of facilitating learning and growth for the leaders of our future, our kids and teens.  Her structure and style are clear and compelling allowing students to break free from the narrow box that our current educational system has created.  A natural problem-solver, her wisdom comes from seeing a system, or seeing a concept in a new way, and showing and encouraging others how to use their gifts, strengths, energy, and talents in a purposeful way.  A true visionary and gift for education."

Delina C.

Sponsorship Team

"...We are directly helping youth develop transferable skills to become leaders of the future. Together with our sponsors, we are making it possible. I hope [students learn] something new, perhaps find or improve on a skill, and feel inspired to use [their] capabilities to take a step towards building the future they envision."

Ryan N.

Sponsorship Team

"Often enough we see youth fall through the cracks because they don’t fit in. I'm really interested in this project because they are providing equal opportunity for all youth to be inspired. This project will provide youth the opportunity to feel welcome so that they can gain the confidence to take action."

Meredith M.

Tech/Marketing Support

"The Youth Empowerment Project is all about building our youth up so that they can take real action using their big ideas. Somewhere for them to start thinking about their futures and the future of the ever-changing world. [It's a place] where they can be heard and helped, and where they can feel truly empowered."

Andy C.

Marketing Team

"I’m really proud of being a part of the Youth Empowerment Project because the company seeks to advance the educational opportunities of young Canadians in an education system that fails to recognize the unique potentials of every individual."

Nick D.

Marketing Team

"My hope is for kids to take a chance and pursue a career in something they find genuinely passionate about, with the knowledge that the traditional forms of post secondary aren't their only available options."

Muslim E.

Marketing Team

"...This company inspires a future generation to never have to say 'I wish I knew about this when I was younger'. I hope that kids that take this program seek out opportunities for a better future for themselves and for the world at large."

Scaling to Schools

"I hope that the kids who take this program learn that there are many ways to accomplish their goals and that they discover themselves. They also learn to integrate relaxation techniques for their well-being while finding what drives them for their future."

Darren K.

Scaling to Schools

"I hope that students taking this program will feel like they have more opportunities in their career paths - more than what our regular school system limits us to. I also hope that they feel empowered and confident about their future career choices."

“'Foundations For The Future' allows young people to learn [and] discover more things about themselves so they can unlock their inner potential to benefit themselves and the society of the future. My hope is for kids to discover their passions...so they can stay true to themselves and what they love most."

Get to Know our Founder

Hi! I’m so happy you’re here! I’m Jess – a mom, trained educator, and multi-passionate entrepreneur. I have a passion for helping youth uncover their potential and believe in their own power and skill. 

The YOU Power Project was born out of my belief that today’s students deserve to be inspired, empowered, and equipped to succeed in life. Our workforce is constantly evolving, and as a former teacher, I know our schools can’t keep up with the changing demands and expectations. 

I’ve always known I had multiple, diverse interests and skills. I attended Teacher’s College and theatre school! I worked in a traditional job as a teacher and built my own thriving businesses as an entrepreneur. No one has to be defined by a job title, and I want our young people to find their passion(s), develop their confidence, and experience all this beautiful world has to offer!

I can’t wait to welcome your student into The YOU Power Project. I know they are going to thrive!
