and benefit young people and communities across Far North Queensland,” said Mr Schultz.

safe place for the whole for the Napranum community.
“Our clubs are recognised as community hubs, and we aim to create a connected, engaged and empowered community through PCYC Napranum,” said Ms Cassidy.
“PCYC Napranum will offer a daily breakfast club, sports and recreation programs, youth development and leadership programs, Youth Support Services and more,” she said.
