PCYC branch to operate Rockhampton's juvenile boot camp

THE Queensland Police- Citizens Youth Welfare Association will roll out Queensland's next juvenile boot camp in Rockhampton as the State Government cracks down on misbehaving youths.

Following a lengthy consultation process, Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie is set to announce today the Rockhampton- based association as the successful tender.

"As a branch of the PCYC, they have a strong and successful history working within Queensland communities," Mr Bleijie said.

"For the past 65 years, QPCYWA has delivered targeted programs for young people most at need. Through its established Centre for Youth and Community Development program, young people will be taught discipline, social skills, and respect for themselves and those around them."

Police, schools and the health system can refer young people to the residential camp.

Participants will spend at least 10 days there and three months being mentored.

"This program is holistic in nature and involves a lot of mentoring as well as working with the young person's family and school," Mr Bleijie said.
