Active & Engaged.
Sport is an amazing tool for engaging young people throughout a journey of development and growth – from first contact work on the streets with a football through to coaching awards, weekly activities and summer camps we see an incredible transformative power in sport.
We use sport within our detached youth work sessions and drop in sessions to engage with young people, bring young people together and break down barriers.
This leads to regular led sessions focussing on a particular sport, and potentially to coaching awards, as well as to cross community competitions, trips and skills based sessions.
School based Sport.
Sports Clubs, before and after school which can be targeted at particular needs such as increasing attendance, building confidence etc.
One of our Out of School options is also based around sport; taking young people to new places and out of their comfort zone to develop self confidence, teamwork skills and a sense of achievement and fair play.
Each year our summers are filled with coaching, mini games, team challenges and lots of fun across all our hubs.
“e:merge uses sport as a way of engaging young people with incredible impact.”
