Our Work

We connect passionate college students with education nonprofits to provide free consulting services!

We create teams of dedicated New York University students who work on semester-long projects with NYC education nonprofits in a variety of service areas. Our student consultants are trained to think strategically and creatively, with the ultimate goal of providing a thorough recommendation for our nonprofit partners.


In the movement for educational equity, why choose consulting as our avenue of impact?

You may not be the best teacher or mentor, but when it comes to consulting everyone has something to offer.
Consulting is inherently diverse because strategic and creative consulting projects are usually best served by a wide range of skills and perspectives. With consulting, EmpowerED can leverage diversity to produce better results for the nonprofits we work with.
Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible. 
Most college students have been through the public education system very recently.   At EmpowerED, we all have opinions on the challenges, issues, and successes that we experienced within the education system. EmpowerED is our way of providing an opportunity for students from all areas of study to shape the future of education.
Our project methodology leverages teamwork and diversity. 
To best serve our non-profit partners and truly make an impact, we ensure that each team is carefully selected with a variety of skill sets in order to offer feasible and effective solutions. Learn more about the services we can provide.

The EmpowerED team started out by asking probing questions to better understand our organization and priorities. They did an excellent job empathizing with our limitations and capitalizing on our strengths and ultimately recommended a strategy that was easy to implement and helped us meet our ambitious goals. Every interaction with the EmpowerED team was extremely professional and their work products exceeded our expectations.

The team at EmpowerED was an excellent resource for Oliver Scholars. As a small nonprofit, we genuinely appreciate the time spent analyzing what makes us competitive and honing in on the best way to communicate that to our students, families, and partners. The team was extremely professional and produced excellent work. We look forward to continuing the relationship between Oliver Scholars and EmpowerED!

360° Skills Academy has worked with EmpowerED on multiple occasions and our organization always benefits tremendously from the dedication of EmpowerED consultants. They’ve helped us launch successful events, enhance our curriculum, and reimagine how we engage with our program participants. EmpowerED has made an extraordinary impact on our organization.

Our EmpowerED team devised a fundraising strategy for our Star Learning Center program that was thoroughly researched, highly creative and ready for implementation. In just 10 weeks, they worked to gain a deep and realistic understanding of our program’s needs and capacities, and provided a well-crafted plan in their final presentation. The group is a tremendous resource for nonprofits in the education field, especially in this time of intense budget constraints.
