The Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Youth Service team held a presentation evening at The Hub on 27 June to celebrate the success of the young people on the Emojis project.


The Emojis project aims to empower the young people who attend to express themselves, and help them build their confidence and self-esteem levels.


Emoji Youth ProjectThe evening involved a singing performance, and a film showing many of the activities the young people had enjoyed whilst attending the project.


There was a presentation of certificates by the Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan, Cllr Howard Hamilton, who was delighted at how much the young people had achieved in such a short period.


The Emojis project runs over a 10 week period and is split into two age groups, Junior aged 8 to 12, and Senior aged 13 to 16.


The young people take part in a wide range of activities during their time on the project, including music production, film making, and trips, all of them improving their confidence, self-esteem, communication skills and emotional understanding.


The evening was well attended by young people and parents and carers alike, and was supported by Families First, Fact, Barry YMCA and The Hub, as well as the Youth Service who provide the workers for the project.
