What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Emerge Beads-to-Business Program

The girls learn to make high quality jewelry and can use this skill as the foundation for setting up and managing their own small businesses. The curriculum tackles concepts such as budgeting, inventory management, product development, marketing, branding, and financing.

The jewelry (each piece is unique) is sold in the United States, Sri Lanka and online with 50% of the selling price going back to the girls' individual savings accounts so that when they turn 18, the girls have money to take care of themselves and, in some cases, their children. The remaining 50% covers the cost of materials and product distribution.

Population(s) Served

The Life Skills program teaches girls about goal setting, reproductive health, job readiness, money management, communication, crisis management, and community engagement. The curriculum includes outside speakers, demonstrative activities, and journal entries. During the community development theme, girls design and implement their own community projects by using a fund comprised of $0.25 of every product made in the Beads-to-Business
program.

Population(s) Served

During Emerge Mentorship sessions, girls are paired with adult role models who cover a curriculum on topics such as body image, childcare, mental health, social responsibility, goal-setting and more. An African based narrative therapy model for post-traumatic stress, “The Tree of Life” model, is incorporated into the sessions. Mentors provide inspiration and motivation to the girls, encouraging them to plan their own adult lives. Former participants return as
“Peer Educators” to relay their own personal transitions into society, to inspire girls with stories of their successfully launched businesses, and to help teach various workshops.

Population(s) Served

Emerge also supports girls as they transition from the women’s shelters to society by hosting annual alumnae reunions, providing general support and check-ins, and connecting them to a variety of local resources and service providers. Alumnae also have the opportunity to join the Emerge staff through the Peer Educator Internship
Program. Emerge is committed to ensuring the girls it has supported stay on the path to successful and bright futures even after they leave Emerge’s program.
