What is the PCYC
In 1948, the Premier of Queensland, Edward Michael Hanlon, was gravely concerned with the increase of juvenile delinquency in the inner city suburbs. He established a committee to investigate the problem and it was their recommendation that a "Police-Citizens Youth Organisation" should be established. After a successful public meeting the Commissioner of Police, the late Cecil James Carroll, was elected as President of a movement later to be known as "Queensland Police-Citizens Youth Welfare".
We are a not for profit organisation and have endorsed Charitable status.
Our club and facilities are available to all in the community and we run programs for the young and the young at heart. The only conditioin is that anyone joining a program at the PCYC need to be a member of our club for insurance purposes.
There are over 40 clubs in Queensland, and once you are a member with us you can use your membership at any other club in the state should you move from the area.
