Mission & Purpose

Emerge Enterprises aims to provide Toowoomba youth from the ages of 14-25 with opportunities in training and mentorship in a fully operational, self-sustainable hospitality business

We deliver a training program with difference in holistically providing youth facing disadvantage with wrap around support in areas of physical and mental health and wellness, mentorship and training and employment opportunities.

We believe in the potential of the forgotten youth who are facing barriers in social disadvantage, delinquency, homelessness and physical and mental health and have developed a program that meets them where they are at in life and empowers them to reach their potential.

Emerge is founded by food personality Jen Shaw who has overcome many challenges in her youth to become a self published author and social entrepreneur. Along with a team of passionate and skilled volunteers we are dedicated in building a unique community space of difference for the youth of Toowoomba.
