The Alternate Life Skills Centre (ALSC), currently operating at Broome PCYC, offers an alternate education program for youth that have become disengaged from mainstream schooling and are classified as Prolific Priority Offenders (PPO’s).
In collaboration with the Department of Education, this alternative education campus provides young people with a relaxed classroom environment, and access to a curriculum that focuses on improving youth literacy and numeracy levels and provides youth with educational and life skill opportunities. Young people are engaged and guided into programs that aim to promote healthier lifestyle choices, positive attitudes, and give youth a second chance in life and entry into possible career pathway opportunities.
Project Stepping Stones
Project Stepping Stones is a basic numeracy literacy program for year 11 and 12 students that are totally disengaged from mainstream education. In partnership with The Department of Education and Centacare, the program is designed specifically for behaviour change/modification and their learning environment is adapted to suit the unique and individual needs of the students.
The program aims to help young people who are of compulsory school age, but who for a variety of reasons are not turning up to school. The programs curriculum and ‘hands on’ learning activities, focus on building skills that will enable the participants to access further education, training and/or employment.
Project Stepping Stones aims to re-engage young people, identify issues they have that caused the initial disengagement and attempt to address it to ensure long term success. The program aims to transition participants into further certified training, back into school or into employment when the time comes for them to comfortably move on from the centre.
The Stepping Stones program is currently delivered at Gosnells PCYC, Northam PCYC and Midland PCYC.
