Our Vision

Australia’s pre-eminent youth organisation working with Police and community to empower young people to reach their potential.


Our Mission

We get young people active in life.

We work with young people to develop their skills, character and leadership.

We reduce and prevent crime by and against young people.


PCYC was established in 1937 by Police Commissioner William John MacKay. It was a partnership forged with the community via Rotary to provide young people with a safe and positive alternative. Over 80 years later that vision has grown and now operates in 64 sport and recreational locations across NSW and is one of Australia’s leading youth-focused organisations.
