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.
Young people are fighting to find their place in the world, how they fit in with their peers, pressures from the media and society. In this digital age, Identity issues and trying to fit in is increasing pressure on young people. Scary statistics in recent reports show that 1in7 young girls hate themselves. Many of our young people suffer from a poverty of identity and lack the self-esteem and aspiration to be resilient against the pressures they face. At e:merge we take time to champion young people as individuals, focussing on being themselves, being free and realising their real beauty. We work hard to help every young person know they are valued and loved.
