A grant will help PCYC Southern Highlands move forward in its goal to empower young people.

The club received a $10,000 centenary grant from the Commonwealth Bank.

The funding will go towards the purchase of boxing equipment and funding for a bike program.

The boxing equipment will include an eight bag boxing rack, which will allow junior, senior and competitive boxers to have additional means of developing their skill set. 

The club will also purchase bikes, which will be used as a general case management tool and for the basis of a new program.

The program will involve taking at risk and young offenders on different trails in the Highlands, in a bid to show them the natural beauty of the shire and reduce their likelihood of committing a crime.
