Why do we exist ?
AYC exists to remove the barriers of isolation for young people in the Auburn Local Government Area, particularly associated with cultural, language, educational and economic diversity, established stereotypes and racism.
What do we do ?
The Beanbag Centre is one the main resources that AYC has. An average of 70 young people a week access the Beanbag Centre.
Since the establishment of the Beanbag Centre we have run 4 workshops to do with multimedia (video and music) and website design.
We have also been able to establish the running of a job club once a week and a homework support program twice a week.
We have created a friendly space and rapport with young people, through this service, because they are able to access the Internet, not only for educational purposes, but also for recreational purposes.
What opportunities do we have for young people ?
On Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm Y. P. use the computers for homework. On Tuesdays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm Y. P. use the computers for job search. The rest of the time, Y. P. use the computers to download music, play games, to check their e-mail accounts and general browsing on google.
