About Us
The Empowerment Factory (TEF) is non-profit dedicated to giving children the skills they need to lead happier, healthier, more empowered lives. We focus on three areas of development: creativity, self-esteem, and civic pride. Our Creative Squad programs blend social emotional learning (SEL), art, literacy, and environmental education. TEF provides children with the skills to be successful in school and in life. TEF wants every child to feel that they matter and can make a difference in the world. Our vision is for all children to have the confidence to effectively express themselves and be actively and positively engaged in our communities.

Founded by Gail Ahlers, as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2014, TEF has designed and delivered out of school time (OST) programs that have proven to be transformational for Rhode Island youth. TEF serves low-income, under-resourced communities, concentrating specifically on the Title 1 schools in Rhode Island’s urban core cities. TEF partners with Pawtucket, Central Falls, and Providence elementary schools, the Rhode Island Department of Education, and many other local organizations and government offices to positively impact thousands of underserved Rhode Island youth and families each year.
