Page 2 Not leaving the future of our young people to chance Great corporations like Apple, Mercedes and Coca Cola, all go to great lengths to put plans and strategies in place to ensure that they they can create the best possible futures for their businesses and for their stakeholders. How much more should we as adults, parents, and as communities, do all that we possibly can to ensure that we can help our young people to have the best future they possibly can? Whether we like it or not we are all going to grow old one day and the people that are going to be making the decisions that will effect our quality of life, who will become our teachers, doctors, civic leaders will be the young people of today. Young people today are facing an array of challenges. Apathy and hopelessness amongst teenagers is widespread.

Workshops, Coaching, Speaking During Black History Month in October 2013 we spoke to all of the students at Moseley School in Birmingham, inspiring them to take responsibility, set goals, be passionate and work hard. young people are growing up in dysfunctional families, in difficult environments and we have to somehow convince them that there are opportunities on the table for them apart from what they seeing or experiencing. We firmly believe that we cannot leave the future of our young people to chance. “I know what it’s like to live in a place of apathy and hopelessness having been a delinquent teen and being homeless at 16, but I also know what it takes to get back up out of it. That’s why we are able to connect so well with our audiences.” Errol Lawson, CoDirector Emerge Leadership We are known for raising student aspirations in all of the schools that we work in. We do this by running workshops, motivational talks and assemblies for 13 – 19 years olds, and by delivering coaching sessions for teachers and parents. Our inspirational workshops for students range from 2-hour sessions up to 5-week programmes, for between 16 - 60 students at a time. We cover a range of topics such as: •Public Speaking and Communication Skills •Critical Thinking Skills •Teamwork •Goal Setting •Student Leadership •Peer Mentoring and much more. We've worked with over 30 schools across the Midlands in the last 12 months, raising student aspirations and motivating them towards their potential. Schools include Arthur Terry, Sutton Coldfield Girls, Plantsbrook, Aston Manor, Bishop Vesey, George Dixon Academy and many more. “You taught me not to run away from my problems but to face them. You motivated me to be positive.” Amina Ramzan Hodge Hill Girls

If you would like to contribute to the work that we are doing with your time, finances or expertise please do get in touch. We would be happy to hear from you. In 2014 we launch the Postcode to the Globe Leadership programme. In the pilot of the programme we will see 18 students from Ghana and 18 from the Uk come together in a ‘World Cafe’ type forum. The programme will enhance their learning opportunities whilst broadening their awareness of themselves and the global community. Other aims of the programme are: Increasingly more parents are having to face the challenge of raising their children in single parent families. Many parents today have little or no support or positive role models to guide them on the way. As a consequence our young people are coming home to difficult environments and facing slim odds of realising their potential. In 2014 we are committed to inspiring, coaching, training more young people than ever before. We are aiming for our schools programmes, which are mostly being delivered across the Midlands, to be delivered in even more schools, raising the aspirations of as many young people as possible.
