Empower Me hires and trains members of underserved communities to deliver multilingual energy efficiency and home safety education.
Known as Energy Mentors, these local leaders understand their community’s unique needs and experiences better than anyone. With the support of Energy Mentors, we empower communities to make informed decisions about energy and their homes.
From energy saving tips to information on rebates and electric vehicles, our multilingual workshops are designed to make energy and home safety information accessible, understandable, and actionable.
Custom coaching helps community members identify specific actions and changes they can make to reduce their energy consumption. No matter where someone is in their energy saving journey, we’re here to empower.
We attend local events and community speaking engagements to raise awareness. We also work directly in community to identify inclusive and sustainable solutions that will benefit underserved communities.
"Our collaboration with Empower Me has been instrumental in enhancing our engagement with Environmental Justice (EJ) communities throughout Seattle. The insights and understanding provided by the project team have been invaluable in tailoring our programs and outreach to address the unique needs and perspectives of Seattle’s EJ communities more effectively."
