The purpose of the Cloncurry Youth Attainment and Transition (CYAT) Network is to increase the number of youth in Cloncurry Shire who complete year 12 or equivalent.
The Group aims to identify current and future skills needs through engaging with business and industry to develop strategies to leverage off existing services to support disengaged and at risk youth and to increase the regions attainment and transition levels.
Driven by local stakeholders the intent of the network is to become a 'one-stop-shop' for stakeholders contributing to youth education & attainment outcomes in Cloncurry Shire.
The CYAT network will harness existing resources and leverage off member organisations to add value to existing efforts and develop strategies to identify and action gaps areas. The CYAT meet on the last Wednesday of every month to discuss potential and ongoing projects.
The Cloncurry PCYC is the hub for youth within Cloncurry. They have a YMT Youth Committee, which generates activities for children in Cloncurry, as well as helping out at many events.
The PCYC Youth Coordinator is Emma McAllister; her job is youth development through the PCYC hub. For more information of PCYC youth activities please contact Emma on (07) 4742 1523.
