PCYC PORT STEPHENS - NELSON BAY PROGRAMS

Our range of PCYC programs aim to give young people practical, real life skills that they can apply to work, family and their community.

Our sports and youth programs aim to build on young people skills and character through training and mentoring, creating young leaders of the future.

Driving education programs promote safer driving, and OOSH supports families, parents and communities by providing affordable after school care. 

RISE UP PROGRAMS

PCYC is unique among youth organisations because it is the only one which is a partnership between the community and the NSW Police Force.

We work with the NSW Police Force youth command work to counter the impact of juvenile offending.

Our Police youth case managers’ approach has proven results and contributes towards reducing reoffending rates by 60 to 70 per cent.

Programs have to incorporate education relevant to the crime category on which the officers are focusing. An example of that would be a break and enter program: the education component could include a presentation from insurance companies on the impact of break and enters, a presentation from a victim, and discussion on crime statistics and dealing with the volume of what’s occurring in that area to help educate young people on the impact of their actions.

Fit to Learn

Fit To Learn is a program designed to re-engage disengaged youth into the education system, allowing them to further develop intellectual and social skills. The program encourages participants to explore their strengths in building respectful relationships within the school environment whilst also developing emotional intelligence skills preparing them for future employment. Aimed at youth aged 14-17 years.

Fit to Strive

Fit To Strive is an early intervention program designed to prevent and reduce re-offending, and build good citizens. All activities in the program will aim at decreasing risk factors in an effort to reduce long-term involvement in the criminal justice system. The program will not focus on a specific crime category but address the root of offending behaviour looking at decision making, values, problem solving and resilience. Aimed at youth aged 8-13 years.
