“Energize is the best bit of my summer by a mile...I love it! Kane, 15

“If I wasn’t introduced to Energize then I would probably still be depressed and suicidal. Energize has helped me to change the lifestyle I was living. I am now so much more confident."                              Bethany, 18

“If it wasn’t for Energize, I don’t know where my life would be. I might have completely messed my life up. I could be in prison or a worse situation.”                              Jason, 17
