This is your chance to find a mentor who will meet with you twice a month to assist you in setting your own goals in a field or area of interest that you choose.


You will be a leader and guide activities & service opportunities. Share your talents to make a difference in your community. Come be a part of giving back at monthly service events, like volunteering at a local soup kitchen, beach cleanup, or retirement community.

Weekly Trainings

Engage in weekly trainings led by Mission Empower staff and leaders and community organizers from various organizations in the Northwest Pennsylvania region. Connect with your peers to discuss, learn, and contribute to discussions.


Everyone, no matter what age or background, needs support from others in order to succeed and feel included.  Join your friends for monthly social events & discuss what is happening in your life, and support each other.
