PCYC NSW is a not-for-profit organisation delivering a broad range of youth and community activities and support. We focus on empowering young people to be the best that they can be through personal development programs in partnership with NSW Police Youth and Crime Prevention Command.

We rely on donations to carry out our great youth programs, activities and events.

Our charity couldn’t survive without the support of the public, our members and the businesses that support us. Please show your support for PCYC Bankstown and donate today to allow us to continue our important work in the community.


PCYC is a charity helping youth survive & thrive, in partnership with NSW Police.

PCYC is a safe place to help young people survive a crisis. Our FIT FOR programs - run under the NSW Police RISEUP strategy - provide mentoring and skills that help youth reconnect with family, education, culture and employment. We're Young people develop resilience and a skill-set to cope with life.

PCYC’s sporting activities, leadership programs, and community engagement empower youth to thrive, transforming their lives.

PCYC programs vary according to local community need across New South Wales. They cost money to run and that is why we ask for your help to invest in the future.

Mental health is a growing problem for young Australians.
Never before have so many teenagers, and pre-teenagers experienced anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges.

By adding a mental wellness program into PCYCs across NSW, we will be able to help young people build resilience and grit, and an optimistic approach to daily life.

GRIT (Growth-mindset Resilience Intervention for Teenagers) blends physical fitness, nutrition education and specific mental resilience skills training, to develop more well-rounded, resilient kids, better equipped to cope with life’s ups and downs.

We are piloting the program this year, and we are asking for your support because our young people need GRIT.
