The Refugee and Newly arrived Migrants Support Group is an independent project for all the refugee and newly arrived young people in the Rockdale area. NAP can specifically cater to young refugee mothers who are in Australia with no support system and have difficulties understanding how to integrate into society in a new foreign country. The program also assists with difficulties such as language barriers and culture shock, with a primary focus on giving new arrivals the skills and knowledge on how to be independent in Australia.
As much as holidays are a time to relax and take timeout from school, they can get boring. During school holidays, EYW runs a program at the Exodus Rockdale location for young people in Year 7-10. This program creates opportunities for school goers to make friends from other schools and communities, while engaging in a range of activities that encourage both teamwork and independence.
Families Matter is an initiative designed to support and provide knowledge in all matters relating to family. The aim is to help people create cooperative and tolerant relationships in all facets of life, and ultimately build a stronger foundation for family life. Workshops are held consistently on topics including early childhood parenting, teenage parenting, couple relationship, marriage, divorce, domestic violence, anxiety and depression.
EYW provides tutoring for students who still attend school, but just need a bit of extra help with studying for exams or working on assignments. The program focuses on their strengths and promotes a healthy attitude towards learning, while encouraging differentiated and creative learning techniques. EYW also provides study groups for university and TAFE students.
