Gosnells Police and Community Youth Centre (PCYC) has received a $10,000 grant as part of the Commonwealth Bank Community Grants program. The will be used to deliver school holiday programs for local identified youth at risk in the Gosnells catchment.
The school holiday programs are supported by key partner WA Police, and the City of Gosnells, who will refer at risk youth to the programs.
The aim of the program is to curb destructive youth behaviour which has often caused members of the public and the shopping centre business owners to feel unsafe. The program is aligned to mutual WA Police outcomes, to reduce youth crime rates, during the school holiday period.
The program will include on site and off site activities, with a large component covering life skills training such as building team work and leadership skills, fire safety, first aid and healthy eating.
“The school holiday program allows our young people the opportunity to engage in activities that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford” Gosnells PCYC Centre Manager Julie Cugley explained.
“Providing our youth with a safe place to hang out and engage in structured activities, keeps them off the streets and out of trouble, and in turn we should see a reduction in crime over those periods” she concluded.
