From attending Blue Light Discos in primary school, to playing & coaching Basketball at her local PCYC club, Chloe went on to master her leadership skills through the PCYC SYLP program and is now passing on those learnings to the young people who attend the PCYC Outside Hours School services she manages.
“I started out at PCYC Redlands roughly 20 years ago, where I was involved in Gymnastics and then the Outside Hours School Care (OSHC) program. It was during my time in OSHC that I started playing Basketball for PCYC at club level, where I then went after a spot in the representative program on the encouragement of some of my OSHC Educators. I was successful and went on to play, referee and coach at PCYC Redlands to support other young athletes like myself.
In high school, my youth programs journey with PCYC began. I was a part of the first group of Girls with a Purpose (now Girls United) which helped me build the resilience and practical skills for challenging situations in life. The skills I learnt in that first program were put to good use when I attended first State Youth Leadership Program camp which I absolutely loved. I went on to complete levels 2 and 3 over the rest of my high school years graduating the program in 2015 whilst in Year 12.
After graduating high school, I applied for a job at PCYC Bayside OSHC. I started my employment in January 2016 as an Educator, a job I loved and continued in right through to receiving the Service Manager role in February 2022. Along with my paid position at PCYC I am also an Adult Leader in our Emergency Services Cadets at our Redland City Unit, a position that I thoroughly enjoy as I get to work with young people in a different capacity to what I do in my everyday role.
I have come a long way with PCYC Queensland since my days attending Blue Light Discos in primary school. My journey so has been one of self-development as I continue to strive for new goals, achieve new milestones and master new skills; and I look forward to a bright future with PCYC!”
