About Solomon Group
Our founders have over 43 years’ experience in primary, intermediate and secondary schools and tertiary education. We work to empower individuals to recognise and develop their potential in a mutually respectful and supportive environment. This inclusive approach is in part why we consistently achieve high occupancy and excellent outcomes.
An NZQA-accredited organisation, we are the largest Youth Services provider in New Zealand. We employ around 100 highly-qualified and experienced staff, and around 580 students come through our doors every year. We offer employment services to about 330 people a year. Since 2009 we’ve supported more than 2,000 people into employment and more than 6,000 into higher training. Our School Support Services deliver to 147 schools in the Franklin, South Auckland and East Auckland areas.
We have run trial or pilot programmes, recently completing a trial with Waikato Tainui “Koiora”, providing Whānau Ora Services to the South Auckland Area. We partner with ANZ to provide the ANZ “Money Minded (New Zealand) Financial Literacy” programme. We are also an AMPTEE member (Association of Aotearoa Māori Providers of Training, Education and Employment).
