What is the Empower Me Tour?

The UNCF Empower Me Tour (EMT)—a free, traveling college- and career-readiness road show—is a national series of events established to inspire and motivate high school, college students and recent college graduates toward academic excellence, career success and personal responsibility. 

EMT provides the opportunity for thousands of high school and college students and recent college graduates to gain acceptance into undergraduate or graduate schools, earn scholarship funds and/or secure jobs and internships on location. Participants attend a series of presentations, panels and interactive workshops offered through two distinct tracks—a college-readiness program and a career-readiness program—to help them get successfully to and through college and obtain meaningful employment thereafter.
