Empower Yourself - Chris Cameron

Empower Yourself is an organisation dedicated to the education of our youth in important life skills such as Confidence, Respect, Self belief, Goal setting, Discipline and much more. These lessons are tailored with a comprehensive Anti-Bullying and Self Defence course that provides our Youth with the tools they need both mentally and physically to succeed in todays challenging world.

Empower Yourself is committed to life skill and self defence education through fun, rewarding programs that will inspire and unlock the potential of our Youth. Developing Respect (manaakitanga) and Confidence (Whakamanawa) through games and exercises engage and empower participants.

We want our young people to have:

  • SELF BELIEF and CONFIDENCE in themselves
  • INTEGRITY and DISCIPLINE in their life
  • ‘I CAN” Attitude
  • POSITIVE Attitude to life
  • Know how to PROTECT themselves
