A resilient community where people belong, contribute and flourish



The goal of Youth is for young people to have a sense of belonging and opportunities to develop their potential within safe empowering communities. Young people need a range of positive voices and role models including parents and extended family, along with other young adults who believe in them and are available to listen and provide practical advice or help. Our youth workers are active in local schools through 24-7.

24-7 Youth Work is a partnership between Darfield High School, Darfield Baptist Church and Selwyn District Council. There are currently 2 youth workers in Darfield High who support the school and students through leadership development, building positive relationships, and enhancing school spirit. The youth workers are presence based and walk alongside local teenagers as they grow through their school years.
