The E4 Youth Approach

For more than a decade, E4 Youth has served thousands of youth ages 16 – 22 in school districts and afterschool programs throughout Central Texas. Our mission is to Engage BIPOC youth at their crossroads when they need mentorship, Empower BIPOC youth to recognize their value and skills, Educate BIPOC youth about creative and tech industry opportunities, and Employ BIPOC youth to create both immediate and lasting change by diversifying the workforce of Central Texas today and beyond.

Our Get Creative Enrichment Clubs, the entry point into our ecosystem, are anchored in six majority-minority high schools throughout Austin, Manor, and Pflugerville serving 100+ students and in the past year, we’ve strengthened our pipeline for college-aged youth by deepening our partnership with the University of Texas at Austin with the establishment of the Creative Leadership Academy (CLA) which will soon be expanding to more than 100 students and the Austin Digital Heritage Project (ADHP). E4 Youth is the leader in youth creative workforce development in Central Texas.
