Co-op / Intern Manager



About Empowered Community

Empowered Community is a nonprofit organization that identifies and addresses unmet needs by evolving programs to fill gaps that would otherwise be ignored. We meet with students, young adults, families, employees, small businesses, and government agencies to learn what programs and services are needed. Then, we analyze job market trends to determine where people are being left behind and resolve that through education, economic empowerment and health & fitness programs. 

We're looking for talented and like-minded volunteers who are eager to learn and help others. You'll work with experienced leaders and business professionals on a cohesive team. We eliminated bureaucracy so you can make a direct impact and feel great about your contributions.


Join us in creating a legacy of empowerment. Apply now!
