The Youth Empowerment Festival is brought to you by Nevada Child Seekers. We are a local non-profit that helps find missing and exploited children. Being established for well over 30 years in Nevada we have come to believe that if children are empowered they are less likely to succumb to peer pressure, less likely to become victims to predators and more likely to live healthy lives. This festival is a way to celebrate our children by giving them a platform to express themselves in a positive way and empower one another to seek help if they are being hurt or bullied. Not only do we address the bullying crisis we join forces with community agencies to be a beacon of hope for families searching for positive resources for their children.
