CCY Inc. continues to work towards building a holistic through-care program that aims to integrate young people ‘At Risk’ and ex-offenders into the community by supporting them to reduce their offending and anti-social behaviors to become respected and valued members of their communities.
When it comes to working with ‘At Risk’ young people, Sam & Dawn along with the CCY Inc. Board have a strong belief in advocacy, family and community participation.
My Story - allows our clients to tell their story in a safe and supportive environment. This is achieved by building positive and trusted relationships. By utilising all facets of media (and communication) the young person not only tells his/her story but they also create a reference point to commence their Journey.
My Self Camps - allow the clients to develop their self respect and awareness by participating in a number of recreational and self developmental programs. This program is an aid in identifying and reinforcing the the need for the young person to build his own Self Awareness & Respect prior to committing to positive change and re-connection to self, family and community
My Spirit to Canvas
My Spirit to Canvas - This program has been designed to explore the spiritual, cultural and ethnic connections of clients and to offer them a number of options in expressing themselves. The program also offers participants a pathway to learning new ways of managing and expressing their emotions. Disciplines include art, dance, photography, videography and music.
My Driving Licence
My Driving Licence - This program has been designed to engage young people who are at risk of, or already have been exposed to the Australian juvenile criminal justice system.

CCY Inc. and Advocacy.
The need for young people to have access to an independent advocacy service when entering the Juvenile Justice system, has been well documented and researched within Australia.

These services include but are not limited to – Juvenile Justice/Accommodation/Human Services/Department of Child Protection/Legal Representation. Furthermore, CCY Inc Advocacy program will refer the young person onto additional youth services/programs/mental health etc. CCY Inc will stay engaged with the young person through a relationship that will be developed with the young person. A relationship based on Trust and Accountability
