About

REGISTER to walk with Mission Empower on our Highmark Walk portal here. About Mission Empower:

Mission Empower (formerly Educational Advocacy for the Inclusion of Youth) began as a volunteer, grassroots organization committed to advocating for inclusion within the school system and the community. We are committed to empowering families and their children with disabilities such as dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, physical, visual, deafness and hearing impairment, mental health and behavioral needs and intellectual disabilities. Research clearly shows that everyone benefits when people with and without disabilities learn, play, and work together. We are a stronger community when true diversity is the norm, and high expectations for all prevail.

In 2012, Mission Empower was designated a federal Community Parent Resource Center, (CPRC), only one of two in Pennsylvania. As part of our federal designation, we were commissioned to improve the educational opportunities of Erie County families who live in poverty, reside in rural areas, come from diverse backgrounds, or for parents who have disabilities themselves. Currently, we provide several key programs including; 1) 'Youth Envision', a youth program ensuring successful transitions from high school to college or career, and 2) 'Mission Read - A Dyslexia Center for Excellence' which is a reading program supporting children with dyslexic tendencies. Your donations will go a long way towards running these essential support programs for Erie's children and youth!
