2021 TSL Designated Charity

Empower Youth was founded by Lori and Scott Conley in February 2015 to partner with children and youth in hopes of instilling in them the confidence and resources needed to break through the chains of generational poverty.

This organization is completely independent and functions under its own board of directors as a 501(c)(3).

Their board members come from different financial and community backgrounds, adding to the brain and brawn of Empower Youth. It takes both mind and muscle to move a gap-filling organization into 4 school districts and into fundraising more than $100,000 per year.

Their executive team includes: Samantha Bock (President), Jeff Diesel (Vice President),  Pam Mansell (Secretary), James Hatch (Treasurer), Scott Wedemeyer, and Justin Conley

Scott Conley serves as EY’s Executive Director, and works in sync with the board to drive the vision and carry out the planning necessary to see that vision come to fruition.

As Empower Youth takes on new territory, they are always looking to add board members who share their vision and heart for youth and their families.
