Description

The aim of the Innocence Project, is to encourage, inspire, challenge and empower girls to face society, giving them a voice and confidence in whom they are made to be and help them find their true identity. Our hope is that they will be challenged by the message, and socially begin the process of enhancing confidence to stand out, and not unthinkingly follow their peers. We want the young girls to feel special and know that they are important, beautiful, unique and loved just the way they are, knowing that they have a reason to live, a purpose to their life and a future that can exceed all their expectations. We hope that they can see that being a teenager can be fun, crazy and exciting!

This is done in 3 ways:

Main Conference: Our main event is held once a year in the style of a one day conference, at a beautiful hotel in Cornwall. This unforgettable, high-energy event is packed with exciting things to do.  From arrival to departure, they will be swept off their feet with a fun filled – red carpet – star quality adventure, with various exciting workshops, impacting seminars led by inspiring speakers, pampering, delicious delights and enjoyable musicians, ending the day in a full concert.

Touring Event: Due to the increased interest for Innocence to be taken to the road, we are looking for partnering churches and hotels across the UK who would like to consider hosting one of our events. This is an amazing opportunity to reach your local teen girls with such an exciting, inspiring, challenging message in an attractive way, where your girls will feel loved and special. We will provide the essential branding and model of our successful annual event and will cater for your specific venue whilst bringing the professionalism, experience and knowledge of our reputable team.

If you are interested in hosting a conference then please contact info@innocence.me.uk and we can send you our Hosting Information Pack.

In the Schools: Innocence has stormed into the schools on the requests of teachers; taking the vision to inspire, challenge and encourage teen girls to look at the situations and issues they face today and give them an alternative way to respond, particularly from some of the pressures they have from the media and society. This will be done, through exciting workshops, inspiring seminars and lessons, working alongside the band L.E.D. Topics addressed include: self-worth, image, identity, relationships, sex, beauty, internet safety, friendships, bullying etc. and will follow the guideline of the National Curriculum and local schemes of work.

Rationale

Today there is a strong realisation that many teen girls have lost the “innocence” they should have at their age. They know things and have experienced things far beyond their years. This is as a consequence of many factors: the extreme expectation that guys have on girls in relationships, the image of girls in the media, and the role models consistently portrayed, bullying and peer pressure, dysfunctional family backgrounds, gangs etc. This leaves many girls feeling broken with no hope, no true identity, lack of self-worth and respect for themselves. There are so many struggling with low self-image, eating disorders, self-harming and some trapped in relationships where they feel uncomfortable. Generally they find teen life hard with a lack of inspiring role models, no ambition or drive to reach their potential and still having all important choices ahead of them.

Outcome

Girls encouraged, inspired and helped.

Testimony of a youthworker: 'It was absolutely amazing! The girls that I brought had a fantastic time the effects of the day will last a lifetime. The standard and detail of the organisation of the whole event from start to finish was outstanding – it is a pleasure and privilege to support and work with you.'
