Youth and community programs at PCYC Upper Ross

Get Set for Work (GSW)

This program is for young people who are disengaging from school or are needing help with job seeking. The initiative is to teach life skills – job skills and a work ethic. This prepares young potential school leavers for a job and a career. This program has had great success in re-engaging young people back in to education/school or in to employment. You will gain work experience, a Certificate 1 in Vocational Pathways, and some amazing friends along the way!

The program runs for 11 weeks, 5 days per week and is for young people aged between the ages of 16-19 years.

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.
