WHAT IS TENFORWARD ALL ABOUT?

TenForward is a place where young people can achieve increased wellbeing, capability and resilience, skills and connections.

Our team of inspirational Gaming Experts help guide kids to form new friendships, collaborate on team projects, and encourage positive social behaviours - using gaming as a tool.

Young people are working through a difficult period of figuring out who they are, what they are, and how they want to ‘be’. TenForward encourages strengthening identity confidence, particularly for young people who fall outside of ‘normal’ activities such as physical sports. They often feel left out, bullied, unliked, and lack confidence, so they find deep interest in online activities like social gaming, or in specific skills like speedcubing. We use these activities, and our Youth Gaming Expert role models, as a means to find new friends who also like the things they do, so each participant feels a sense of belonging. 

Kids tell us that TenForward has ‘their people’ and they can be themselves and know that others will appreciate them. This empowers their belief in their self worth, leads to acceptance of their identity choices, and knowing they finally belong to a community with positive social connectedness. 

Our mission is to inspire kids who love gaming, YouTube, social media and pop culture, and support their interests with our varied programme, while being safely cared for after school.  We have a special interest in focusing on social development skills, and we are an ideal place for kids with behavioural differences/specialties who struggle in neurotypical environments. We also accept Carer Support hours if your child receives these. Our gaming experts help grow social skills so our kids can become good people online.  

TenForward offers kids and young people some amazing opportunities to be inspired and harness their skills for practical application.  Plus, it’s a super fun after school care programme, conveniently located near Greenlane Roundabout, and opposite Remuera Intermediate.
