Online Youth Empowerment Academy (O-YEA) has over 20 years of education and coaching experience. We're passionate about educating, inspiring, and empowering students and families to dream bigger and helping them achieve better results.
We are committed to positively impacting students on their journey to Adulthood. We foster growth by providing relevant up-to-date classes on various topics including but not limited to mindset, self-esteem, college awareness, and future opportunities.
