At e:merge all our activities and projects are about developing young people to realise their potential. Through all our sessions we focus on 9 areas of their lives that we know if we can have an impact will be transformational for them.
We all take risks every day, from when to cross a road to whether to be honest with someone. Knowing when to take a risk is essential in our ability to grow and develop. Many of our young people either take very few risks (their comfort zone is so small they don’t leave their street) or they are taking far too many risks (by not knowing when to back down, or getting involved in criminal activity etc). Through the promotion of value based community, through challenging behaviour appropriately and through providing opportunities for young people to constantly try new things, we see young people to begin to grasp and understand what levels of risk they should be taking.
