By investing in the social and emotional well-being of learners, Community Keepers create supportive school communities where learning and development can prosper.

We build long-term relationships

OUR SCHOOL-BASED OFFICES ARE MANAGED BY A REGISTERED COUNSELLOR WHO BUILDS LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS WITH LEARNERS, EDUCATORS AND PARENTS. OFFICES ARE OPEN ON ALL WEEKDAYS DURING SCHOOL TERMS.
WE SYSTEMATICALLY IMPLEMENT OUR SERVICES AND PROGRAMMES, FOCUSING ON ONE GRADE DURING OUR FIRST YEAR OF IMPLEMENTATION. ANNUALLY, WE PRESENT THE FOLLOWING SERVICES AND PROGRAMMES TO ONE ADDITIONAL GRADE UNTIL THE WHOLE SCHOOL IS ACCOMMODATED:
AT THIS STAGE, LEARNERS, EDUCATORS AND PARENTS BECOME THE DRIVERS OF THE INITIAL AS WELL AS NEW PROGRAMMES. WE STAY INVOLVED WITH INITIATIVES WHILST FOCUSING MORE RESOURCES ON SUPPORT SERVICES.

R90 is the average fee for employing a Community Keepers psychologists, counsellor or social worker for 45 minutes. However, for 30 minutes contact with a learner, an additional 15 minutes is needed for preparation and administration (report writing, referrals and feedback). Therefore, we guarantee that for every R90 donated, a minimum of 30 minutes time will be spent with a learner.
