Youth and Community Programs at PCYC Mount Isa
Blue EDGE (Educate, Develop, Grow, Empower) is a program of physical training designed to extend a young person’s mind and physical capability. The program also includes career education, motivational speakers and mentoring with a view to having youth actualise their potential.
Outcomes include personal relationships and rapport being built between Police, Blue Light Volunteers and the young people and their families.
The intention of the program is to grow and develop the skills and attitudes young people need to take part in society, now and in the future.
We believe that interacting with young people will encourage participants to be receptive to good guidance and have respect and trust in the police as they mature.
We believe that the interaction between young people, the Police and Blue Light is making a positive and sustainable difference in people’s lives.

RUBY (Rise Up, Be Yourself)
RUBY (Rise Up, Be Yourself) is a free physical fitness program for women who are, have been, or likely to be experiencing Domestic and Family Violence (DFV).
Held weekly at a number of PCYCs across Queensland, RUBY is designed to empower women by building physical strength and contributing to general well-being, emotional resilience, self-esteem and confidence through physical exercise in a violence free and safe environment. The unique program gives participants a different outlet and tools to combat the DFV cycle by fostering connected relationships with other women in a safe, group environment. Sessions are facilitated by a qualified, female PT and a female member of the QPS attends and participates.
RUBY can be a conduit for the needs of the women, and help to create a culture of change and facilitate them to a place of survivorship. It can link participants into existing local services for support, information, referrals and resources and the partnership with the QPS ensures that positive relationships are formed with participants, and direct support is provided.
