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.

- Working with prefects, school leaders and school councils
- Working with small groups on life skills
- Sports coaching
