Covid-19 hits PCYC youth hard
A vulnerable young person from a struggling family, an Indigenous boy or girl with few local facilities, a young person at risk of engaging in criminal activity. All unable to access PCYC to find safety and a place to belong; to learn resilience skills from Police and PCYC mentors, to engage in physical activity, or to attend a program that helps them re-engage more positively with community. The social cost of Covid lockdown is incalculable.
PCYC is currently losing over $250,000 per week in revenue due to the Covid health orders affecting 27 clubs in Sydney, the Illawarra and the Central Coast. This revenue funds our life changing programs that reach thousands of vulnerable, disadvantaged, or at risk young people. The need for PCYC's programs is greater than ever. We need your generous help to ensure we can kick-start these programs as soon as the lockdown lifts.
PCYC needs your help to support and transform the lives of young people after lockdown
PCYC was established in 1937, with a mission to empower young people, get kids active in life, and reduce and prevent youth crime.
Yet PCYC, a charity, receives little more than 10% of operational funding from government.
The lockdown is a significant setback, but our resilience has withstood nearly 85 years and, because of you, we will get through this, to help our young people.
Your support helps to fund life changing programs that reconnect disadvantaged young people to family, culture, education, employment and community. Thanks for getting involved in this challenge to help our young people.
Because of you, a young person's life can be transformed.
