Weekly Sessions

The PFYTO team meets  weekly examining various character development traits - their meaning, importance and relevance in today's society.  Through debate, discussion, leadership activities, skills workshops and  dramatic arts we examine and explore these traits as they relate to our lives and community.

Community involvement and outreach are also core aspects of our PowerFilled Youth TO.  The PFYTO team continues to show their commitment to creating positive community engagement opportunities. 


Our "PILOT" Talks series allow leaders within our community to​ engage meaningfully with the team, sharing wisdom, knowledge and life experiences.



Due to the Covid 19 crisis, we are not able to get out in the community and do our random Acts of Kindness campaign as planned, but we won't let that stop us!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Ellen Degeneres and team for this truly memorable moment and your incredible generousity. 


 Getting ahead doesn't always happen alone.


We need mentors and advocates to support us.  Finding impactful mentorship is unquestionably valuable and we invite and encourage members of our community to join us and share their knowledge and skills.
