Kensington PCYC last week relaunched its latest intervention program, called Safe Space – Zone 51. The program, received $30,000 of funding from the Royal Perth Golf Club, runs on Friday afternoons from 3.00 – 6.00pm.
Two youth workers will deliver a mixture of diversionary and recreational activities both in-centre and out in the community to support local youth-at-risk and refer them into appropriate support agencies if needed.
Kensington PCYC Centre Manager Amanda Dow said that without the funding from the Royal Perth Golf Club, running the program would not be possible.
“Thanks to the Royal Perth Golf Club, we are able to have two youth workers on-site for three hours each Friday to engage with the young people and deliver a range of fun, interesting activities. We have also been able to purchase new recreational and sporting equipment for our young people to use, which has been very well received.”
Kensington PCYC recently underwent a $1.24million upgrade, and Ms Dow said that this, combined with the purchase of the new recreation equipment, has encouraged more young people to attend the centre.
“The youth are loving the new space, and are looking forward to attending a City of South Perth outdoor movie with picnic dinner at the end of March.”
