Local organisations are invited to be part of the NSW Police Force’s new Fit For Life program for young people aged 10-17, commencing on Tuesday 2 October 2018 at the Tweed PCYC at 7.00am. The program will then run each Monday morning, starting at 6.30am.
The NSW Police Force Youth and Crime Prevention Command (YCPC) recently launched “Rise Up” (www.riseup.org.au), a new strategy developed by the NSW Police Commissioner, connecting disengaged young people to workplace opportunities.
The Rise Up strategy includes eight newly designed programs that will be run at PCYC’s across New South Wales.
As part of this new strategy NSW Police Force YCPC Youth Case Managers, Tweed Heads Police District and PCYC NSW, Tweed Heads Club, would like to invite all local organisations, especially those working with youth in the Tweed Heads area to be a part of the “Fit for Life” program.
The program is designed to encourage local community and organisations to come on board to engage with the participating youth, while enjoying some fitness and a nutritious breakfast.
If you would like to refer a young person aged 10-17 to participate in the program, please contact S/C Lisa Paice or S/C Clare Tuckett, Youth Case Managers at Tweed Heads PCYC.
If you would like to join in the fun, or have any queries about the program, please contact the organisers on 07 5599 1714.
ABOUT FIT FOR LIFE:
Fit for Life is an entry level activity using boxing, incidental education and consistent mentoring to encourage youth at-risk to connect and remain engaged with PCYC NSW club offerings in a youth friendly, physically and culturally safe environment.
It is a foundational activity along the Youth & Crime Prevention Command RISEUP pathway with the potential to lead participants into more structured programs such as Fit for Work and Blue Star leadership programs.
This program will be focusing on fitness, together with engaging local Police and the community, impacting change, positive growth and inclusion.
The program is based around the 5 core principles of PCYC – commitment, resilience, integrity, citizenship and respect, which are taught through core messages and reinforced through the Sporting activity.
The Program targets young people between the ages of 10-17, identified as at-risk of or already engaging in anti-social or offending behaviours that are likely to set them onto a poor life trajectory.
Once a week – ongoing activity.
