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.

EVENTS AND SPORTS
To promote health, exercise, acceptance and inclusion MFO invites and encourages all young clients to participate in a variety of sports, athletic events and programmed trainings. This is a great way of meeting and making new friends, from all communities, and we cooperate with different organisations to meet the diverse interests of our young clients.
SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES
Social inclusion is an essential part of adapting to a new life in Australia. MFO supports the multicultural youth by providing them with interactive and fun school holiday activities.
