Presentation evening for Emojis project attendees
2 December 2015
A presentation evening was held on 27 November at Barry YMCA to celebrate the success of young people who attended the Emojis project delivered by the Vale of Glamorgan Youth Service.
The project aims to empower young people to express themselves, build their confidence and self-esteem levels, and develop skills to manage their emotional responses in a positive manner - all achieved in a short-term intervention period of 10 weeks.
During their time on the project they take part in a wide range of activities, including arts and crafts, singing, music production, film making, discussions, sports, media, sound engineering and working towards accredited courses, resulting in improved confidence, communication skills and emotional understanding.
The evening featured performances by a former member of the Emojis group who continues to provide support and encouragement to members, along with a film made by the young people showing a synopsis of their time on the programme.
Each young person received a certificate from the Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan, Cllr Fred Johnson, with congratulations all around from the other attendees.
The Emojis project is delivered with support from Families First and Fact.
