Connect, Support, Empower
Connect, Support, Empower
Our amazing and diverse team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping migrant children and children from diverse backgrounds to become connected, supported and empowered to succeed as much as they can in the communities. We work with school-aged children and youth to develop their potentials, break barriers and empower them to access opportunities and become connected in the communities through a range of programs.
We provide a range of programs aimed to support the migrant children and other children from culturally diverse backgrounds and their families including the Homestudy Groups, free online legal clinics as well as settlement support and crisis support programs.
We also hold regular events such as Children Food Art Challenge, Kids run a Stall, Snow Fun day and Chess and Board Games sessions as either separate programs or as a part of our Homestudy Group program. At Newbridge, we want to provide programs that enhance the health, wellbeing and community connectedness of migrant children, youth and their families and deliver these programs in a safe and encouraging learning environment.
In June 2019, we have received donation of a number of children bicycles so children are also learning how to ride bicycles safely.
