The Broome PCYC Alternate Life Skills (ALCC) offers an alternate education program for youth that have become disengaged from mainstream schooling and are classified as Prolific Priority Offenders (PPO’s).

Gosnells PCYC – Project Stepping Stones
Gosnells PCYC Project Stepping Stones is a certified basic numeracy literacy program for year 11 and year 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.
Project Stepping Stones was a finalist in the recent City of Gosnells Safe City award in the category of Constable Peter Ball Memorial and received a certificate of Appreciation for our work towards providing a safer community and providing quality intervention programs for youth at risk.
