Kool Kid Club
Weave's Kool Kids Club (KKC) is an educational outreach and prevention program for children aged 7-13 years living in La Perouse and surrounding areas. Working with local schools the KKC provides FREE after school and holiday activity programs to support the development of resilience and life skills for children and young people.
KKC focuses on a strengths based perspective to improve school engagement and successfully tranistion into high school. KKC is an important community program that also builds connections with community and family.
Our activities include: surfing, dance, short film projects, music workshops, sports, arts and cooking.
Over 85% of the children that attend Kool Kids Club identify as Aboriginal. Kool Kids Club is staffed by Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal youth workers.
Kool Kids have a “Switch Leadership and Mentoring Program” working with children 12 to 17years. The program works with children transitioning from primary school into high school. The Switch Leadership Program nurtures leadership qualities in young children and young people and encourages them to take an active role in supporting their peers and promoting positive school experiences that make transitioning from primary school into high school successful.
The Next step Switch program works with older Switch Leaders and builds skill in community development, community leadership and employment.
Every Kool Kids aspires to become a Switch Leader.
