Schools Work

South West Youth Community has been working in our local schools for over 15 years. During this time it has changed and morphed.
As a Church, through the Spreydon Youth Community Trust, we partner with local schools to provide youth workers to these schools.
Our Youth work is provided under the ’24-7YouthWork’ Network, which oversees youth work in over 60 schools across New Zealand.

SYC has 12 youth workers that work an average of 10 hours per week, and commit to working 3 – 5 years in a school.
Our youth workers are there to serve the school, matching their gifting with needs in the school.

This includes;

  • Mentoring
  • Leadership development
  • Working with prefects, school leaders and school councils
  • Working with small groups on life skills
  • Sports coaching
  • Assisting in classes, on trips and activities
  • Being an extra pair of hands on camps
  • Organizing fun events
  • Training students

The schools we have the pleasure of working in are;

  • Hillmorton High School
  • Cashmere High School
  • Middleton Grange School
  • Christchurch South Intermediate
