Youth Empowering Parents, a Canadian charitable organization, transforms young people from "educated"​ to "educator."​ It is premised on the phenomenon of children naturally teaching English, computers, and other skills to parents and grandparents at home, and has built a training program model whereby the teaching potential of any young person can be unlocked. All programs are free, enabling adults and seniors to acquire one-on-one tutoring, while providing inner-city children and youth with a meaningful volunteer leadership experience. The organization has received Canada's top literacy award, The Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life Literacy Innovation Award. YEP is also one of just 10 organizations worldwide to receive the United Nations'​ Innovation Award. YEP became a charitable organization in 2014 with one Toronto location, and now operates 45 locations in 5 countries. Through YEP, inner-city youth have contributed more than $2 million worth of free one-on-one tutoring to adults and seniors in their own communities.
