Our Mission

The True Way Youth Empowerment Foundation encourages youth to Think Outside the Box! Our mission is to inspire youth to explore all paths and avenues towards their goals. Within that search to find their niche’, we implore them to step out of their comfort zone and find creative and innovative ways to “skin the cat!” Our conferences and workshops develop and enhance problem-solving and critical thinking skills that are necessary to navigate life successfully in and beyond the classroom. We connect education with life goals!

What's in your box? How do you use the tools available to you to your advantage? This critical-thinking and problem-solving workshop challenges participants to make "lemonade" from a box of lemons. We incorporate lessons in teamwork and collaboration, leadership, integrity, creativity, and work ethic. These are valuable life skills that go far beyond what's in the box!

True Way Tuesday!

Join The Movement of Random Acts of Kindness. Every Tuesday, we encourage you to commit a random act of kindness towards a young person. This is our part in growing the character in young people that we'd like to see spread throughout the world. Small acts of kindness can include a smile or warm greeting, taking the time to ask them a question and then really listen to the answer, or presenting them with a gift card for a snack or treat at Wawa, or Dunkin, or the movies. The intrinsic reward surpasses the surprised and pleasant reactions from kids that have been "True Way Tuesdayed!" Share your random act on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, tag True Way and use the hashtag #itsthetrueway.

The late Ms. Mixson left a phenomenal legacy of perseverance, tenacity, and inspiration. After raising 6 children, she returned to school to earn her real estate license. She  later started her own contracting and home remodel business. Esther was not only the first double minority to win a contract with the city of Philadelphia, she also managed her businesses and projects from her wheelchair; both her legs were amputated in 1991. After her arduous recovery, she returned to work. She was also committed to her community and youth by hiring and mentoring ex-offenders, she employed women in non-traditional roles such as foremen (women) and carpenters which helped them gain freedom from public assistance and government supports, and she supported youth organizations by buying uniforms, sponsoring events, fundraisers, and providing transportation. True Way is honored to honor her legacy by offering 4 scholarships to nominees in the areas of real estate, entrepreneurship, the arts, and athletics. All of these endeavors embody the spirit of Esther Q. Mixson.
