Teen entrepreneurs, Essynce Moore and AJ Carr, both just 15-years old, are dedicated and determined to inspire, empower, and educate thousands of elementary, middle, and high school students in about 25 cities/states around the world. Moore and Carr will be hitting the road to inspire with their Youth Empowerment Tour.

Young men, women, and children die every day in cities across the country at the hands of other young people. Many of them are also being attacked because of the color of their skin, being unique, and unfortunately some need to fear for their lives every day.

Essynce and AJ’s goals are to address concerns and issues in the schools to help eliminate all the negativity that’s present and embrace more of the positive.

The purpose of the “Youth Empowerment Tour” is to empower and inspire the youth by discussing entrepreneurship and living your dreams, as well as, addressing bullying, self-esteem, and creating a forum where the youth can openly address the many issues that affect their communities, schools, and households every day. We encourage them to suggest possible ways they can make a difference in a “non-judgement” zone.

At just 13-years old, AJ Carr created the organization Building Bosses, a non-profit organization teaching the youth the importance of leadership, entrepreneurship, and service. He created “Building Bosses” to help the youth to explore & cultivate their talents, promote leadership & positivity, build character through self-esteem by teaching self-worth, & encourage our youth to become productive members of society.

Today, AJ is a 15-year old professional public speaker who recently did a TedTalk, as well as a professional SAG actor. He currently has a recurring role in the new Showtime series The Chi, created by Lena Waithe & produced by Common. He has had co-starring roles on NBC’s Chicago PD, PBS’s Mercy Street, and most recently, the FX series Atlanta. AJ is an amazing actor, but it’s what he does with his personal time that makes him so extraordinary.

At 13-years old, Essynce Moore started Essynce Couture University (ECU), a division of Essynce Couture, LLC to teach the youth about its four pillars: Entrepreneurship, Integrity, Education, and Leadership, as well as, prepare them with life style skills that’s rarely taught in schools.


Today, Essynce is a very well-known 15-year old author who has written three books that are mandatory readings for several school district curriculums including Hillside, NJ School District; Brooklyn, NY Charter School(s); and Orange, NJ School District. Her books are a part of a series that she created called The Middle School Chronicles! The books can be used to prepare students for Middle School, assist with self-esteem, bullying, conflict resolution, youth empowerment, and so much more.

Essynce is also a fashion designer who started her own clothing line, branded “Essynce Couture”. In 2015, she launched Essynce Couture Spa and Boutique exclusively for children, tweens, and teens to give the youth a place of their own to visit and be pampered, inspired, and educated.


Essynce & AJ are both successful young entrepreneurs who want to help young people recognize how valuable their lives are and give them the encouragement to unite and become leaders in their communities.

They want to connect with the youth and invite them to openly discuss the issues they feel affect their community in a negative way by shedding a positive light on how to deal with the situation(s). The panel will listen to the youth, as well as, provide them with positive suggestions of ways they can rise above their circumstances and actively work toward accomplishing their goals.
