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.

Workplace Giving

Regular giving via automated payroll deductions is one of the easiest, and most cost-effective ways to support PCYC NSW's work empowering youth. By providing the option for your staff to donate via a payroll giving platform you can demonstrate your corporate social responsibility values.

We work with a significant number of organisations via their workplace giving programs, and can offer a comprehensive staff engagement program to communicate the great impact of your staff donations. Company matching of staff donations can give an additional incentive for staff to get involved and show an organisation’s commitment to helping young people survive and thrive.
