St Kilda PCYC Winter 2024

Imagine being 15 years old, facing the world with the weight of a broken home on your shoulders.

Meet Jayden*, a resilient young soul who, despite the challenges he faces, manages to find solace and hope within the walls of our club.

Jayden comes from a household marred by substance abuse and instability. His mother, battling her own demons, struggles to provide the nurturing environment Jayden needs to thrive.

Living in one of our local housing estates, Jayden and his mother rely on government support to make ends meet.

School, for Jayden, isn’t a safe haven either. He’s a school refuser, caught in a cycle of disengagement and risky behaviour. But amidst the chaos, there’s a beacon of light: St Kilda PCYC. Here, Jayden feels safe.

Our dedicated youth workers provide Jayden with the guidance and support he craves. Every day, he walks through our doors, greeted by a sense of belonging and acceptance. With a warm meal in hand and compassionate ears to listen, Jayden begins to heal.

St Kilda PCYC isn’t just a club to Jayden; it’s his lifeline. It’s the one constant in a sea of uncertainty, the only place he feels truly understood and valued. Without our youth programs and unwavering support, Jayden could easily spiral into darkness.

With your continued support, we can ensure that no young person falls through the cracks.

Your generosity fuels our mission to provide a safe haven for youth like Jayden, offering them the resources and guidance they need to overcome adversity and realise their full potential.

I urge you to join us in making a tangible difference in the lives of young people in our community. Your donation, no matter the size, will help keep the light shining bright for Jayden and others like him.
