Urban League of Palm Beach County will host our Ninth Annual Youth Empowerment Luncheon with the theme: Transforming Lives through Technology. The event will be coordinated by our NULITES and NAS participants.
Many propose technology as a tool for empowerment of lower social economic status urban students, but little research has investigated the relationship between technology and empowerment for the low- to moderate-income population. The Youth Empowerment Luncheon will highlight how different aspects of technology use and ownership could empower urban youth to increase their self-efficacy. Instead of simply a general measure of self-efficacy, we focus on several important domains related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects including technological, mathematics/science, academic, and general self-efficacy.
