La Vida Youth Trust employs three 24-7 Youth Workers in Riccarton High School and two in Riccarton Primary School.

24-7 Youth Work is a trust relationship between local schools, churches and community organisations in the context of the local community working together. 24-7 Youth Workers spend time with young people - listening to them, encouraging them, connecting them with their peers, teachers and vital services. They are accessible and positive role models for the young people they work with. 

For more information on 24/7 Youth Work, please visit their website.

We believe in young people. We want to see young people enjoy their school years and build a great foundation to launch themselves into adult life. We want to see a good strong healthy next generation of New Zealanders coming through.
