NZEWT After School Program
NZEWT’s After-School Program brings together refugee kids from across Auckland City and provide them with a safe space to learn and grow. This project aims to serves refugee youth and young humanitarian migrants from Somalia, Eritrea, Syria, Sudan, Myanmar, Afghanistan and Iraq aged between 5 to 15, who are in year 1 through year 10 and enrolled in the school. The project focuses on students who have been in New Zealand for three years or less, with particular emphasis on students who have been in Auckland for less than one year.
What services does the Program provide?
Our program begins with a meal, and volunteers work alongside the students to complete homework assignments, practice English, and review basic skills. Students also learn about Kiwi culture. During the school holidays we also organizes many fun activities for the students.
Who runs the Program?
The After School program is run by a dedicated group of volunteers. We also have a high school teacher on board with years of experience teaching children of different ages. We also have specialized teachers who come in once a week to facilitate art and cultural activities. Our staff is also bilingual which allows them to be inclusive of different cultures within a safe environment
