PCYC sees tens of thousands of young people in our 66 NSW clubs every week of the year. We see an urgent and growing need to develop mental resilience skills amongst our youth. PCYC’s new preventative GRIT program builds mental resilience, by combining physical well-being and nutrition, with emotional and social intelligence skills.
Because of your life changing support, you will make a difference to young people’s mental health.
Just sign up and start fundraising for the PCYC StarJump Challenge.
We're asking you to challenge yourself to starjump in March 2023 to fundraise for young people, and help us give them the tools they need to face their future with strength and positivity.

Mental health is a growing problem for young Australians.
Never before have so many teenagers experienced anxiety, stress, depression and other mental health challenges.
Prevention is always better than cure. PCYC’s new GRIT (Growth-mindset resilience Intervention for Teenagers) program operates in the prevention and health promotion space. It focuses on building physical well-being and nutrition, with emotional and social intelligence.
Because of your fundraising efforts, you will help PCYC’s mental wellness program reach more young people; and thus directly help them build resilience, grit, and an optimistic approach to daily life.
Show us your star power!
