About Us

Police-Citizens Youth Clubs (PCYC) Queensland is a leading provider of community sport and recreation programs, services and facilities.

Since 1948, our staff and volunteers have been working in partnership with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) to meet local community and youth needs – including programs, outside school age care, gym and fitness, activities and more for everyone. Today, PCYC Queensland is a trusted charitable not-for-profit supporting more than 73,000 members across 53 branches from Cape York to the Gold Coast.

Together we are  building safer, healthier communities through youth development.

Importantly, PCYC Queensland clubs are a vital and key point of engagement for young people who are at risk, disadvantaged or disengaged. Our clubs and programs provide opportunities for over 50,000 young people to have positive experiences, get involved in a wide range of activities, and learn from great mentors and community leaders including our serving police officers.

Almost 90% of our work is funded through kind donations and our services for the community. The remaining is from government funding and significant in-kind support from our QPS partners.

Any surplus revenue goes straight back into our programs and facilities, as well as the communities we serve – ensuring we deliver on our vision, now and in the future.

Our three pillars of youth development, crime prevention, and community engagement underpin all that we do.

It all starts here at PCYC Queensland… where it ends, is up to you!
