The mission of the 1st annual Youth Empowerment Conference is to implore the youth to be more active in the electoral process, to take a more defiant stance in the fight to stopping the youth on youth violence, and to understand that without them we don’t stand a chance. NVWWM, is collectively incorporating, community, church, business and government, in hopes of producing the next generation of leaders. NVWWM sees the need to invest in our youth, as well as young adults. Time and money is the most valuable investments that can be made. NVWWM believes that many capable people have not been investing in neither, but yet, they are self-indulging and complaining. They further believe that in order to work on a solution, a decision has to be made. This isn't that problematic. It is simply narrowed down to accountability. "Do I have money to give or time to give"? The problem is that some people think that someone else is going to do and they rid themselves of the responsibility. When the truth is that everyone is needed. Every person is an important piece of the puzzle.

But she is counting on the community to work together, with their time and or money. She states, "I don't believe in a magical God, but I believe in a God that works through people".
