On Wednesdays, up to ten young people aged between 10 and 14 years are picked up from schools in the Waterloo and Redfern areas,a healthy afternoon tea is provide. Programs have included learning to swim, film-making, cooking, skateboarding, screen printing, and swimming. After the program the children are dropped home. The young people get to attend up to two terms of programs. Schools, parents/carers and community organisations can refer children to the program.
On Thursdays, Weave partners with the City of Sydney and runs an afterschool program based at the Glebe PCYC. The young people are transported to and from the program and are offered afternoon tea. Young people residing within the Glebe LGA are encouraged to enrol in the program.
On Fridays, the program is slightly different. Afterdark is a collaboration of a number of services that provide a drop-in style program from 6pm-9pm at The Peter Forsyth auditorium in Glebe. Young people and their families are welcome.
Young people and their families attending the afterdark program can enjoy a cooked meal and are encouraged to get involved in the various programs running throughout the evening. Streetbeat provides transport home for anyone who requires it. Programs delivered on Friday nights have included a sports tournament, skateboarding and screen-printing.
