Our Teen Programme involves three, two hour workshops titled ‘Valuing Identity’, ‘Let’s Talk’, and ‘Understanding Relationships’. The programme has three versions that are tailored for single-faith (Christian or Muslim) and mixed groups including young people of no faith.

We recognise the importance of young people having a strong sense of who they are and what they want to be, separate from how they may be perceived or how different parts of society may ‘tell’ them they should be. We explore value, identity, communication and healthy and unhealthy situations, creating spaces for honest and open discussions where different experiences and views can be shared and addressed in appropriate ways.

Our programme aims to promote confidence and self-esteem, better communication, and understanding around healthy and safe environments. By supporting young people to be confident and able to communicate well, we encourage them to reach out if they feel they or their peers are in vulnerable situations. This is done while recognising our responsibility to safeguard, rather than placing expectations on young people to protect themselves.

FACES Teen Programme

These sort of sessions make me feel better about myself and it tells me my worth. They’re interesting and gives us a lot of information.

I feel grateful for what I have after listening and sitting in today’s session. I have a better understanding of what and who I am.

I learnt that being different doesn’t mean you’re bad or not valuable.

This session was good, we liked that you understood us as Muslim, teenage girls that also want to experience ‘normal teenage things’. We also have a voice to show that we are nice Muslims not bad as stereotypes are used against us. It’s hard to be a Muslim teenager as they say teenage years are the hardest – we are just curious.

I really liked this session, and it was fun, I understood what I am worth and I loved the hadith that were mentioned, it really impacted me spiritually and mentally. Thank you very much.
