Jets Support PCYC Young Offender Program

At every home game the Newcastle Jets provide tickets and a corporate box to local charity and community organisations.

At every home game the Newcastle Jets provide tickets and a corporate box to local charity and community organisations. These donations aim to support home-grown charitable initiatives and the needs of the community.

Recently, the Newcastle PCYC was in attendance for the game against Perth Glory. Senior Constable Brendan Haile, a Youth Case Manager for Newcastle PCYC, used the tickets as a reward for participants in their young offender program.

The program aims to give these youngsters a second chance, and, Senior Constable Haile spoke on-field, pre-game about the PCYC and its many, vital community programs.

“The Newcastle PCYC Police program strives to reduce and prevent youth crime in the community through Targeted Programming interventions for young offenders, young people at risk of offending, youth crime hot spots and areas where young offenders come from," he said.

"The young person-s that attended the game originate from differing socio-economic backgrounds. They are all passionate about their sports but due to their financial situation have never seen a game live.

"They were very appreciative of the opportunity to engage with Hunter community members and cheer for their favourite soccer team.”
