Australia’s pre-eminent youth organisation working with Police and community to empower young people to reach their potential.
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.
Stepping Stones to Success
The Stepping Stone to Success (S.S.S.) program is aimed at providing young people with skills that assist them working towards gaining employment. It will build self-worth, ownership and provide direction in their lives contributing to their integration in becoming a productive member of the community in a positive manner. Links to employment and a subsequent reduction in crime are well documented. This programme is run by Hornsby PCYC and is funded by Wahroonga Rotary Club.
