Our vision for our Empowerment lens is to focus on the youth looking specifically at self-love and autonomy, enabling young people to represent themselves with confidence and a sense of self-worth. We want
to make the community a better place for the next generation.
We aim to do this by focusing on the following:
● Mental health, including those that have experienced systemic racism in the criminal justice system, education, the community etc.;
● Looking at the stigma attached to young people that have been in the criminal justice system and how this experience affected them;
● Providing Life coaches;
● Honouring the youth voice by including them in our decision-making and;
● Holding cultural empowerment workshops focused on topics such as Loving your natural hair (afro/curly).
