PCYC — A LITTLE ABOUT US…

Police Citizens Youth Clubs NSW is one of the largest youth organisations in Australia, with more than 60 clubs and centres across the state and more than 85,000 members.

PCYC is about getting young people active in life, developing their skills, character and leadership and reducing and preventing crime by, and against, young people. Our sporting, recreation, cultural and welfare programs aim to improve the lives of individual members and the development of local communities throughout the NSW.

Local PCYC clubs provide a range of sporting, recreational and educational programs to youth and wider community in a safe and secure environment. By helping young people learn new skills and encouraging their participation in programs that focus on values and community involvement, we are also helping them to grow as individuals and providing them with the experience necessary to make positive, proactive life choices.

In all of our clubs, NSW police officers case-manage young offenders, and young people “at risk”, working to reduce crime and help these young people move away from their old friends, old “habits”, and find new outlets, new activities and get back to study or into a job.

Our Blue Star citizenship programs help identify and build the leaders of tomorrow.
