Our Mission

To engage, encourage & empower youth.

We aim to create a community for young people where they are accepted, loved and supported exactly where they are at in life right now, without judgement and with eyes on a positive future.

Let's be honest, being a young person and figuring out who you are can be tough! When homelessness, addiction, mental health issues, family break down or other traumas are added to the equation life can feel pretty rough.

Emerge is a non-religious, grassroots organisation that engages youth in appealing mentorship programs, social activities and hospitality training for an empowered future.
