Albany PCYC Out Of School Care
Childcare Services - Albany, WA
Providing a brighter future for young people through direction, development and opportunity.
Established in Western Australia in 1941, The Federation of Western Australian Police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC) is a not-for-profit organisation that creates opportunities for young people in the community through the delivery of recreational and educational activities and programs. We operate in excess of 50 PCYC and Blue Light Centres throughout metropolitan and regional Western Australia, as well as two camp facilities.
PCYC is different to other organisations delivering youth services because of our relationship with the Western Australia Police. Police Officers work closely with our organisation, referring young offenders to life-changing programs run by PCYC, which plays an important role in early intervention and youth crime prevention.
Through the provision of life skills, intensive mentoring, diversionary programs and training we focus on ‘breaking the cycle’, to prepare those identified young people for gainful employment or re-entry into traditional education.
