EMPOWERMENT

EmpowerMENt is a community inclusion and engagement project working with young men in High Wycombe using non formal education, fitness and social support. In a safe, non-judgmental space boys/young men explore their identity and behaviour as men and help support them to develop practical steps to improve their lives. We also use YouTube videos, song lyrics, and current news headlines to raise debates and discussions to allow group members to respond with their ideas, thoughts, and perceptions of issues. These could relate to mental health, local youth issues and approach topics like 'Stop and Search', personal safety (flight not fight) sexual health, relationships, identity, sexuality, domestic violence, extremism, e-safety, politics, knife and organised crime and harmful or risk taking behaviours. Experiential learning, sports, life skills, self challenge and diversionary activities are key to developing interests and competences as well as alternative life choices/directions for young men locally. We also embark on residential projects with the participants in new environments and locations.

COMMUNITY COOK ELMHURST 2022

Community Cook is a community project that brings young people together to celebrate diversity and cohesion through cooking workshops across Aylesbury Vale. Aylesbury has vast and ethnic mix of cultures, backgrounds, traditions and histories and this is a chance for young people to not only explore these through food and different cuisines but also to celebrate the extensive vibrant multicultural area they live in.

Cooking together is a great learning experience in social education as well as developing culinary skills and competences from basic cookery through to dynamic dishes learning for life; as well as bringing generations together as well as different cultures and signature dishes.

Community Cook breaks down barriers between groups of young people, mixes generations together and challenges stereotypes through this amazing practical project opportunity, whilst showcasing their achievements to their families, friends and local community

DATE & TIME: These sessions are being rescheduled due to covid restrictions
