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.
