YOUTH DEVELOPMENT & HOMEWORK CLUB

 
 
 
 

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC ALL YOUTH PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES ARE NOT CURRENTLY OPERATING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. 

THE YOUTH & HOMEWORK CLUB

The Homework Club was initiated by MFO in 2007, and after becoming an instant success this concept is now implemented by nearly all Settlements Services in Australia. The aim is to assist Primary and High School students, from a Cultural And Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background, to adjust to the Australian educational system, learning a new language and settle into their new life environment.

THE PROGRAM PROVIDES

  • Holistic Support to students from a CALD background

  • a Safe Environment, away from home and school, to encourage learning and social interaction with peers

  • students with Academic Support from volunteer tutors and mentors

  • Leadership and Personal Development opportunities through workshops and team building activities

  • School Holiday activities

 

Our aim is to create a safe and encouraging environment allowing each student to flourish.
