Fremantle PCYC Breakfast Club has been nominated for the Fremantle Foundations Impact100 grant.
Impact100 inspires at least 100 donors to annually contribute $1,000 each, with the money put towards a primary grant to empower a local charities and programs.
The Fremantle PCYC Breakfast Club provides a healthy breakfast to young people, most of them at risk, before school.
Fremantle PCYC Centre Manager Julie Gorman said the centre developed the program for young people who don’t have the option to have breakfast at home.
“We have between 30 to 40 kids a week, the flow on consequences are increased attendance at school, better concentration and that belonging feeling that someone cares for them, something we take for granted,” she said.
The Fremantle PCYC Breakfast Club will be offered two days a week to any young person between the ages of 10 and 17 who want to come and have a good healthy breakfast free of charge. Young people are also able to use the Fremantle PCYC facilities to do their homework, play some basketball or talk to a youth worker before heading to school.
Donors attending the annual Grant Awards Dinner will choose the grant recipient collectively on 1st November 2018.
