Thank you for your donation.

The Empowerment Factory (TEF) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 learning center with a mission to positively impact the community by creating smarter, happier and more empowered people. We focus on serving two groups:

  • Underprivileged elementary, middle and high school youth and their families. TEF offers after school enrichment programs that foster creative and critical thinking, self-expression, communication, collaboration and self-esteem building. Over the past 2 years we have implemented 11 after-school and 4 summer programs reaching 350 Rhode Island youth. TEF has a goal to increase its youth membership from 350 to 1000 by 2018.
  • Entrepreneurs of all ages, the unemployed and people in transition. TEF provides weekly personal and professional development seminars that are free and open to the public.  The goal is to expand TEF’s reach beyond its physical space to include remote access through webinars and live streaming in 2017. This service will help people who are unable to attend in person due to physical limitations, working hours or caregiving responsibilities.

Your generous gift will allow the learning center to expand its youth, personal, and professional development programs.

Warm regards,


TEF Founder, Artist and Educator
