A key worker works alongside each young person on homework support while also developing a trusting relationship.
The strength of our relationships with young people is evident from their continued voluntary use the service throughout their school lives.
Volunteers describe being inspired by the talent and enthusiasm of students, plus feeling like they are really able to offer some meaningful help.
Our unique approach creates a genuine partnership between a business or organisation and a school in their community.
We have recognised that while supporting young people, it is essential to assist them in learning six basic skills: following instructions, concentration, listening, checking quality & accuracy, working on your own and working under pressure.
We believe that when young people acquire those six basic skills they become more independent within their work and more self-directing within their own lives.
After a two year pilot at Holy Family School in Porirua, new Homework Clubs are starting up around the country. Please click here to sign up if you are a low decile primary school.

The RYP Homework Clubs run Seasonal programmes, which offer fun and creative projects outside school term and are specifically designed with prevention in mind.
We don’t just support young people in their educational development.
