Empowerteen is a program for Teens/Tweens to give them tools they need for mental, emotional, physical and social health. They learn to manage stress, depression, anxiety, focus, how to increase confidence, body image, healthy relationships and community.

     My name is Dr. Paula Pilcher and I am a Naturopathic Physician, former High School Teacher, and former Counselor at a Group Home for Troubled Teens. I developed this program in 2013 because due to my experience working with adolescents I have found that ALL are "at risk" for unhealthy behaviors during this pivotal time of change, no matter their upbringing or circumstances. As a family doctor, I wanted to develop a health program to give them the tools they need based on scientific research and preventive medicine to give them a chance to love and take good care of themselves, prevent anxiety and depression, reach with confident hands into the future, and make their world and our world a better place for everybody.

     I'm asking for help because I want to turn this program into a non-profit with programs locally, online, across the country, and eventually world wide. In order to do this, I need to hire a non-profit attorney, non-profit accountant, and get the necessary papers and fees in order to file with the IRS. I have been paying out of pocket since 2013 for the program, and other monies and donations that have come in have gone to sponsorships for Empowerteens to attend events and classes, or to growing the program through advertising, material costs for Empowerteens, as well as building a website.

     I need your help to take this to the next level so more can benefit! I have my data to prove there is need for the program, increased scores on self-esteem and body image surveys, and feedback from parents and teens/tweens that it is making a big difference. Will you please help me make 2018 the year Empowerteen makes it to non-profit status? You'll be doing your good deed to ensure our future is bright!
