24-7 Youth Work in Schools
24-7 Youth Work is a relationship between a church and a school in a local community. Hope Youth has six youth workers working in two schools. The youth workers are involved with running lunchtime events, helping in classes, attending school camps, coaching sports teams, mentoring young people and much more.
The schools we work in are:
Youth Community Programmes
Hope Youth runs six youth programmes each week across four communities. We are connecting with approximately 286 young people per week ranging from 11 to 25 years old. We see our youth programmes as a great opportunity to connect with young people and build belonging within each community context. It’s a privilege to journey alongside young people and we see the huge potential Hope Youth has to empower young people to be the best they can be.

Local Community Youthwork
We are passionate about making a real impact in the life of our community. We encourage young people to get involved by participating in our programmes, serving in the community, and learning skills that will be helpful in life. We also connect with young people outside of school through our youth programmes. Click on the community you'd like to learn more about:
Campfire ( Young Adults Community )
Campfire is a young adults community that empowers one another and journeys together. A camp fire draws people toward it, and it's normally where great conversations take place and honesty is evident. This is why we choose this imagery to illustrate what our community is about. Campfire young adults age from 17 to 25 meet each fortnight to learn about different topics in small groups and share food in the wider group . Each term we run a special event and have heaps of fun as a positive community.
One of the fortnights each month is a Big Group potluck dinner. Meeting at the Hornby Youthb@se, we share food together so that all small groups are able to get to know each other. The dinner starts at 6:30 pm and after this we break off into small groups. To see where the next Campfire is, click and like our Facebook group to be updated.
The opposite fortnightly Wednesdays to the potluck dinners, the small groups meet in volunteers' houses. Starting times vary and the groups are run by individuals from Hope Presbyterian who are passionate about supporting young adults and journeying alongside them as they develop after leaving high school.
We have a Boys-only group / Girls-only group / Mixed group from Hornby / Mixed group from Rolleston
