About us

Kuils River Youth Trust (KRJT) is a Non-Profit Organization that provides effective social services in schools within the Kuils River community by assisting with social, spiritual, emotional, cognitive and physical support and development of school-going young people.


Promote phyco-social well-being within the school community so that learning can take place and learners can develop to their full potential.


By placing a Social Worker in each school within Kuils River, the KRJT can invest in social, spiritual, emotional, cognitive and physical support and development of learners. The Kuils River Youth Trust strives to build long-term relationships and provide family support as well as preventive programs.

Our Background

The trust’s full name is “Kuilsrivier Jeugbedieningsforum Trust” and was started in 1994 under the guidance of a group of churches to serve young people in the greater Kuils River Community.

Over time, the consciousness has grown that a more comprehensive service, that also addresses psychosocial and social needs should be established.

Research was done and three schools within Kuils River was identified and three Social Workers were placed there as fulltime workers. The Social Workers are employed by the KRJT and are responsible to the Board of Trustees for all their work.

The Trust is managed by a Board of Trustees composed of several community representatives.

Our Purpose

The dream of the KRJT is to place a Social Worker in each school in the larger Kuils River community.

The Social Workers assist learners with academic learning by providing strategic services that identify and address the social-emotional-environmental issues that interfere with the educational process.

Working close with parents/guardians, teachers, school principals and community-based resources, the school Social Worker implements strategies that promote learners’ positive school adjustment.

Each Social Worker is assigned to a school based upon identified needs of the learner population.
