In School Work 

One of our core projects is in school youth work & mentoring. 

Our in school visits are designed to engage with the young people of our community by being present in the local schools during lunch breaks and providing activities and offering support to staff where it is needed. During lunchtime hours, in-school youth work takes on a special role as our mentors connect with students. These moments of guidance and support can be transformative, offering a safe space for students to share, learn, and grow. Our visits go beyond just “playing games”, they inspire confidence, build resilience, and help young minds navigate the challenges of school and life. 

We currently work with Sumner Primary, Our Lady Star of the Sea & Te Rae Kura.
