ABOUT EMPOWERMENT “TRIBES”
”Tribes” is the organizational structure Georgia EmpowerMEnt members and leaders chose when beginning the steps to expand presence statewide. The spirit behind this term is one of family, sharing a common bond through the experience of foster care, taking care of our “own”, building for and with each other -
A Tribe is made up of Youth Leaders and Adult Supporters who decide to come together to identify local needs impacting youth who are transitioning from care, train together, and ultimately act as a team (with the partnership of the local community) to address those particular needs.
Some of us as Georgia EmpowerMEnt’s central staff serve as facilitators and technical assistance providers who are available to support both Youth Leaders and Adult Supporters in developing a Georgia EmpowerMEnt Tribe in their local area as a youth-
