Seeing into future at PCYC
Words by Nick Crockford

PCYC Caboolture has given a glimpse into its future with work set to start on a new multi-million dollar centre.

Artist’s impressions show the front entrance, gym, multi-purpose rooms and a huge gymnastics centre at the rear of the building.

Plans for a new PCYC, on vacant land beside Caboolture Police Station in King St, were first unveiled 20 months ago.

It will replace the current PCYC, built in the 1980s less than 5kms drive away in Toovey St, Caboolture.

In its latest flyer, PCYC Queensland says the new centre will be a “purpose-built home for PCYC’s youth development programs, sport, recreation and community activities”.

There will be a youth space, 24/7 community gym, gymnastics, trampoline, outdoor basketball court, as well as sealed and overflow car parking.

PCYC Caboolture’s youth programs, such as its driver mentoring Braking the Cycle and Skilling Queenslanders for Work will continue from the new centre.

So too its school-based crime prevention and community engagement programs, with plans for Youth Leadership Team, Rise Up and be Yourself programs.

When the project was announced in last year, the Federal Government was giving $5 million, matching the State Government. Moreton Bay City Council committed $2.5 million.

The new location is seen as being more central and accessible, will improve the organisation’s service delivery, create 83 jobs in construction and nine when finished.

PCYC Caboolture has more than 1000 members and families through activities such as gymnastics, boxing, martial arts and youth development programs.
