Recognising the need to become mobile, the WA PCYC Mobile Outreach Team offers services to those individuals and communities that may not have access to our centre facilities.
The Outreach Team operates in partnership with local government, social agencies, schools and community groups to provide activities, programs and youth spaces to meet the wants and needs of the young people in their local area. Providing opportunities for young people to participate in community activities, access resources, pursue interests and develop skills.
OUTREACH BUS AND FUN TRUCK
The Outreach Bus and Fun Truck are sent to designated areas labelled as ‘trouble hot spots’ or that have a history of antisocial behavior. The area is selected using information from funding bodies, the WA Police Force, local businesses, community members and local youth.
Our Outreach team consists of qualified youth workers, who deliver services for young people throughout the school term and during the school holiday period, which include providing a range of activities and educational resources for young people in the metropolitan area.
Our sessions provide a safe environment for young people to participate in team sports such as AFL, soccer and basketball, activities such as BMX riding/ramps, scooters, tug of war, sumo suits, table tennis and other recreational activities.
Many of the young people who attend these sessions are regulars and a large number of these youth are deemed “at risk”. Youth workers are trained to address issues which may surface and to deliver appropriate activities and resources as a form of early intervention.
Current Outreach activity, supported by The City of Swan, during school terms include:
Monday – Rosher Park, Lockridge (3:00pm – 5:00pm)
Tuesday – Farral Oval, Stratton (3:00pm – 5:00pm)
The City of Swan also provide support for our team to deliver two outreach session per week during the school holidays. These sessions include regular Fun Truck activities, plus sausage sizzles and recreational activities.
You can also find the Outreach team at events around the metropolitan and regional areas providing activities and youth mentoring.
