Police and Community Youth Centres (WA)

 

Overview

The Police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC) operate a range of recreational, development and outreach programs to meet the needs of young people and communities in regional and metropolitan Western Australia. In particular the programs aim to engage 'at-risk' young people in early intervention, to provide opportunities to learn life skills, engage with the community and break the cycle of offending.

Recreation

PCYC offers more than 100 different recreational activities to provide a safe and healthy engagement for young people. Examples include:

Development

PCYC offers around 30 different development programs which are designed specifically to target highly ‘at-risk’ young people and those that may already be involved in the Juvenile Justice System. Structured programs are delivered by qualified teachers aimed at skill development and behavioural change.
Examples include:

Outreach

Outreach mobile services are provided by PCYC to those individuals and communities that may not have access to a current PCYC facility.
Examples include:
