What we do?

Our center focuses on alleviating poverty through our job exploration program and youth-led initiatives. Our team of experts uses their experience to develop our youth-led programs in rural communities in Taiwan. We provide young people with educational choices and crafting their skills for local and global job markets.

Why we do it?

The concept of IPOWER was first created in New York City. We take on the greatest challenges that are facing many of the world's countries today. Issues such as inadequate human capital investment and high unemployment rates among youth are tackled with our innovative curriculum.
