Coffs PCYC to add a hub for youth

THE Coffs Harbour PCYC has been awarded $9120 by the Federal Government for a youth hub.

The youth hub at the Bray St PCYC will include big screen televisions and IT technology for children who visit the centre.

Federal Member for Cowper Luke Hartsuyker announced the funding this week from the Stronger Communities program.

"PCYCs are iconic in Australia - tens of thousands of young people have attended these clubs over the decades to socialise, learn new skills and exercise," he said.

"Whether it's pool, basketball or taking part in computer games and training at this new youth hub, it is always about a safe relaxed environment for kids to be themselves."

The Coffs Harbour PCYC is run under the supervision of Youth Police Command Sergeant Peter Ryman and Senior Constable Dan Usher and senior activities co-ordinators Rob Anderson and Sarah Brady.

The centre offers driver education programs, out of school hours, vacation care and gym and fitness.

"At PCYCs it has never been about babysitting kids, it's stimulating, engaging, encourages interaction and its fun," Mr Hartsuyker said.

Coffs Harbour PCYC has had a gym renovation.
