The Empowerment Congress’ work is driven by several guiding principles that serve as the foundation for our community engagement strategies. Click the image below for a downloadable version of the principles.
Active participation in public life, community service, and the political process to promote social justice locally and globally, while employing empathy, ethics, values, and a sense of social responsibility.
The notion that individuals gain power by engaging and becoming active in their communities and their government; and that power, in and of itself, does not exist in isolation nor is it inherent in individuals but is created in the following relationship types: individual, familial, communal, and political.
A demonstrated focus on helping and attending to the needs of others; use of certain abilities or gifts to serve as an instrument for the benefit and improvement of society. Servant leadership is fundamentally about service as opposed to power or ego.
