KEY stakeholders in the PCYC Far South Coast met at Club Narooma on Wednesday at the Narooma Services Club to discuss bringing its services to as many young people as possible.
PCYC Far South Coast manager Gary Dunbar said the main aim of the meeting was to provide an overview of where the club is situated at the moment, provide information on the 2015 program and set out a timeline for recruitment of the PCYC Far South Coast interim committee.
There will be an Annual General Meeting in June.
The PCYC Far South Coast committee will play an integral role in assisting the club in achieving its mission.
“We get young people active in life, and we develop their skills, character and leadership,” Dunbar said.
“We reduce and prevent crime by and against young people”.
The PCYC Far South Coast club is a partnership between the Eurobodalla Shire Council, Bega Valley Shire Council the NSW Police Far South Coast Local Area Command and the NSW PCYC.
The Club covers the Far South Coast from Bateman’s Bay to Eden and aims to utilise an outreach model to deliver services.
This is unusual in that most PCYC clubs are based in a single location, but in this region, the two PCYC youth case managers head out and provide services in locations around the district, he said.
The PCYC is meanwhile also seeking expressions of interest from potential committee members, including two young people, one female and one male between the ages of 16 and 25, to provide a youth voice to the direction of the club.
The club also hopes to appoint a president and vice president to lead the committee to assist the club manager and police youth case managers in achieving the clubs goals.
“There is also an opportunity for up to eight volunteers who would like to make a contribution with your background and skill to the aims and objectives of the club to join the committee and provide their skills and background,” Dunbar said.
