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 to the streets. Over 75 years later that vision has grown and Police Citizens Youth Clubs NSW is one of Australia’s leading youth focussed organisations. We provide an extensive and varied range of fun, safe activities for young people and the wider community. We are focussed on the reduction of crime by and against young people and on the promotion of citizenship within communities across the state.
