Youth Empowerment

Youth empowerment is a worldwide issue that we’re all concerned with.  The sustainability of our planet depends on how we educate and empower our youth.  Through our infrastructure of strategic alliances and resource providers, we envision helping co-create a comprehensive program that encompasses written materials, videos, live symposiums, coaching and mentoring, and entrepreneurial opportunities to move our youth to the next level of development in their lives. The YOUth CAN DO! program and the Youth Essay Contests are part of the foundation for our youth empowerment initiatives.

Based on several decades of research and development in youth empowerment, we have collected some of the best tested and proven resources for youth development and empowerment.  Our mission is to work with other individuals who share our vision and co-create the best ways to combine these and other resources into a comprehensive system.

CAN DO! has acquired resources for youth empowerment and youth leadership development from world-class resource providers such as Paul J. Meyer, Les Brown, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Brite Music, Lisa Nichols, Quantum Learning, HeartMath®, and Genii Townsend of The Light Center.

Genii has been creating celebrity marionettes for decades and she is now working with CAN DO! to create Empowerment Marionettes to tap the power of edutainment to help youth of all ages discover how to tap their creative imagination and realize more of their potential.

Genii has created a Les Brown Empowerment Marionette for the Say Yes To Success Programs with Les Brown.

Say YES To Success With Les!

Motivational speaker and trainer Les Brown is one of several of the top success coaches in the world who are contributing their time, energy, and resources to support the CAN DO!  vision of expanding the circle of success. He worked with his mentor, Mike Williams, to adapt his newest, best-selling cassette tape program Choosing Your Own Future into a condensed workbook designed for children as young as 12 years old for the Muncie, Indiana Housing Authority Success Center Partnership. CENTER SPACE and the University for Successful Living are non-profit organizations helping people, organizations and communities achieve more of their potential through a network of locally designed Centers for Successful Living that provide greater access to some of the best development training resources in the world.

Brown has been working with the founders of  Ultimate Destiny University since 1990 on similar community development and youth empowerment programs including the initiation of the CAN DO! Community Unity Celebration featuring Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and Les Brown in Kankakee, Illinois.          

“Mr. Brown donated his services valued at over $50,000 to provide this life-changing experience for the young people of Delaware County. His company, Les Brown Enterprises, also provided access to the audio video based training programs Les has created which the Success Center Partnership will offer on an ongoing basis” said Charles Betterton, President of CENTER SPACE, which helped the Muncie Housing Authority create the award-winning Success Center Partnership.

“In addition to Mr. Brown, Paul J. Meyer, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn and the Strategic Marketing Group are providing some of their best training programs and materials at discount prices and they are donating thousands of dollars of technical assistance to help us adapt for public housing residents these materials that are usually marketed primarily to corporate America. With this level of support from some of the best trainers in the world, we will surely succeed in our mission of helping American’s discover that we are one people, one community, with one economy and one future" Betterton added.









The CAN DO! Empowerment Resource Center is a joint venture of three affiliated non-profit organizations: Ultimate Destiny University; CENTER SPACE (The Center for Personal,
