Emerge Kids in Sports provides and support young people to play organized sports and access to leadership skills programs. Many Children faces challenges of growing up in communities plagued with poverty, preventable crime, thus involving them in "Negative Recreations". We believe to help improve their self esteem and confidence, leadership skills and other important life skills through our programs. Our dedicated team of volunteers and staff are on the ground and help achieve long-lasting community benefits
We have a vision to ensure that every child, regardless of ability is involved in sports at an early age and that no child is EVER left watching from the sidelines simply because their family couldn't afford the cost. Some parents does not know the benefits of kids participating in organized sports at an early age, we therefore will educate them about this.
The mission of Emerge Kids in Sports is to create resources in communities, increasing the participation rates of children in sports and youth -led programs regardless of ability, religion and financial situation, developing a strong and healthy community.

Our youth leadership programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people..
