JOE MORRIS

COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT CENTRE

 

Engaging, Enhancing, Empowering Young People and the Wider Community.

Motive

 

Our aim is to assist young people in making the most of their lives through the medium of sports, music and personal development programs while encouraging a general cohesion amongst the wider community and creating an understanding that we can all be anything we want in life, and that this life is precious. 

 

There is a rapid increase in the number of young people who have lost their lives to knife crime as well as those who have had their lives radically altered as a result of prison sentences, life changing injuries or the effects of trauma.  There is also a steady escalation in the numbers of young people who are disengaged or disaffected within our communities.  Many lack a sense of belonging and are searching for something that will clarify identity and corroborate their intention.

 

At JOE Community Empowerment Centre, we intend to provided opportunities and outlets for young people and adults within the community that will:

Enhance the length of life

 

Our purpose is to help young people stay alive and as such we have created a safe space where they can discover and develop some of their gifts and talents.  Sadly, many have yet to identify their unique gifts or the talents which have the potential to make them stand out and be set apart. Our job at JOE is to help them engage and empower them to utilise the gifts and talents which they already posses, often disguised as raw materials.

 

Enhance the quality of life

 

Our aim is to help young people discover and develop the skillsets that will be necessary to help them live a life that is enriched and empowered. We believe that all young people regardless of age, race, gender, status or cultural background have the potential to lead an exceptional life.  Our intention is to help young people realise their value and to make decisions that will enhance and not endanger their future.

 

Enhance the purpose of life

 

Our intention is to encourage and equip and young people to develop a sense of purpose, why they are here and why they do what they do.  We understand that many have a short-sighted vision which can at times prevent them from seriously considering the impact and consequences of their actions.  Our responsibility is to connect young people to a sense of purpose which is bigger and brighter than their current situation or circumstance.
