Resilient, Connected and Empowered
CityCare is all about backing young people to step confidently into a future they have the power to shape. Our goal is to see resilient young people who are empowered to pursue their potential through a range of key activities for Youth such as SHINEGirl & STRENGTH, Safe Spaces, Youth Events and Youth COACH.
The outcomes of our CityCare youth programs aim to see young people:
Young people are equipped with skills & competencies.
Young people have confidence & agency
Young people are safe & supported within an enabling environment
Young people are engaged, leading & contributing
SHINEGIRL is about equipping girls with the knowledge and skills to discover who they are and the person they want to become. This program challenges participants to find the strength and courage within them to accept and love who they are, to make healthy choices and live to their full potential.
The STRENGTH program is about equipping adolescent men with the knowledge and skills to discover who they are and the person they want to become.
In partnership with COACH Network, young people are matched with a mentor to meet weekly over a 12-month period, working towards the achievement of a significant goal and to increase personal wellbeing.
From a sports comp to a breakfast program, Safe Spaces give young people consistent access to spaces in which they feel safe and can connect to their peers and supportive adult role models.
