POWER, Inc. is a non-profit organization 501 (c)(3) that is dedicated to the reduction of juvenile delinquency through the  creation of artistic content and curricula that enlightens, inspires and emPOWERS underprivileged and at-risk youth.

Target Community

The lives of our youth are connected regardless of the location of their homes. What happens in one neighborhood affects other neighborhoods and what happens in one child's life affects the lives of other children and their families. By mentoring youth in underprivileged areas, we facilitate positive growth and cohesiveness for the immediate community and the community at large.

Youth from low-income families are  more likely to enter the juvenile justice system than juveniles with greater financial means. By targeting youth in at-risk communities, we are able to help those who are more likely to take the wrong path. Through the building of character, self-esteem, and the personalized formulation of short and long term goals, the potential to transcend adversity is greatly increased.

A Message From The Founder

My Utopian Theory

"In a perfect world, children would find value in education as opposed to tennis shoes. The neighborhood kingpin would NOT be a role model, fear of an early demise would not exist, and ghettos would become obsolete in the absence of poverty..." Dr. A. L. Smith



Children Die In Children

MISSION 

"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots..." Marcus Garvey

Our Services

 The Arts:  Audio-visual/Cinematic Content


There's nothing grander than imagination, especially in a child. We strive to create reality-based content that "Enlightens, Inspires & Empowers".  

"He Never Came Home ", our first production, is a harsh depiction of injustice carried out to the very end in the state of Louisiana. The documentary film details the unsolved murder of a prominent socialite and subsequent detainment of Lemon Howard,  a mentally disabled African American youth. Although the charges against him were dropped, Lemon Howard spent 42 years in Louisiana's Penal System.

Our ultimate goal for the film is to build a foundation of awareness concerning the imperfections of our justice system and the prevalence of failure among minorities, specifically in the state of Louisiana.

 PowPower, Inc. Curriculumer, Inc. Curriculum

POWER, Inc. embraces the importance of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. We offer a comprehensive curriculum to accompany the artistic content. The material is designed to address prevalent issues in a manner that emphasizes cause and effect, promotes increased awareness,  encourages dialogue concerning change, and fosters the prevention of juvenile delinquency.
