Published: December 14, 2018 12:00am
Subiaco PCYC Cert I in Leadership students graduated Wednesday, 13 December with an outstanding performance. The students are part of the PCYC and Department of Training and Workforce Development’s (DTWD) Leadership and Development funded program which began at Subiaco PCYC in 2018. The kids who have not fit the mainstream education system had the unique opportunity to learn teamwork, volunteering and communication from the program – all making them job-ready. Course Trainer, Alana Jones mentioned that these kids are extremely helpful and great performers in terms of the program tasks assigned. “It brings them another step closer on their pathway to employment. We are so very proud of all of them.” The students built their first outdoor seating area complete with bricklaying, a herb garden and not just that, the students also showcased their creativity with hand designed graffiti art on pots (image shown on right). Alana, very proud of the exceptional achievements of all her students, presented a young female student, Jasmine King with the title of Dux. Jasmine’s performance throughout the program period has been remarkable especially her attendance where, she completed 40 hours of volunteering when only 20 hours was needed. Subiaco PCYC staff and volunteers, as well as the trainer, were thrilled for the young students on attending the course and contributing to all team projects because it truly provides a much-needed structure in their lives. Parents and acting youth crime intervention officers (YCIO) came around to chat to the Cert I Leadership students, and the rest of the afternoon was enjoyed with a sausage sizzle and cake to celebrate the successful completion of the program.
