Ibex Club is a proud sponsor of Empowered.

Today's students — hindered by the traditional, outdated, education model — are not learning the skills and perspective they need to compete in the modern marketplace and to succeed in life. Empowered, launched in 2021 after decades of success as Youth Entrepreneurs (YE), is emboldening a community of teachers — in DFW, around Texas, and nationally with resources that extend their role as change-makers in their profession and in the lives of students.

Empowered Teachers guide students through individualized, immersive, hands-on (3D) learning activities that draw-from and apply-to the real world. This better way of learning ignites the growth (entrepreneurial) mindset and ensures more young people will be ready to create and seize the opportunities in their lives while creating value for others.

All Empowered resources are designed to be broadly applicable and are based on an innovative instructional strategy called Experiential Self-DiscoveryTM (ESDTM) that is brought to life through:

  • (FOUNDATIONAL) PRINCIPLES are consistent, classic values and ideas on which to anchor and guide all choices and actions in life.
  • MARKETS are places, including classrooms,  for the incentivized exchange of ideas, knowledge, good, and services for mutual benefit.
  • (GROWTH) MINDSET comes when use of principles and markets drives innovation, nurtures confidence, and creates success.

Empowered’s evolving online tools are designed to meet educators where they are, supplement and advance the work of Empowered’s staff (many of whom are former classroom teachers) and help educators searching for and those most-likely to benefit from ESD application, have low-friction access, 24/7 to Empowered’s support for their:

  • STUDENTS IMPACTED 75,000+ in Texas, 5,000+ in the DFW Metro-Area (500,000+ Nationally)
