What is the Empower Me Tour?

The UNCF Empower Me Tour (EMT)©—is a free, virtual college- and career-readiness event — a national series established to inspire and motivate high school students, 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 on-line 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.
