This program is designed to divert young people, aged from 12 – 21, away from homelessness and anti-social behaviour that will impact on their functioning with mainstream society. What we do:

  • Intensive case management to a minimum of 40 young people to divert them from homeless and anti-social behaviour
  • Increase their capacity for social inclusion, self-reliance and self-sufficiency through innovative training and skills based programs such as Learn to Sail and other certificate training opportunities
  • Strengthen family links
  • Link young people and their families into other support services and networks that will increase their resilience, protective behaviours and capacity for social inclusion

The Café One program aims to provide a safe and supportive environment to empower and support young people aged 16 to 24 years who are disengaged from schooling, homeless or at risk of homelessness or experiencing disadvantage by providing employment training, to help break the cycle of disadvantage and achieve goals towards independence. Café One mobile van moves to different locations with the support of local councils and business groups, helping to highlight the program to the wider audience and engage various communities, and improve the social skills of the participants. The presence of the Café will serve to encourage other at risk young people to approach and seek information and referrals, and provide additional opportunities for our case workers to engage at a much deeper level with the young people through an assessment of broader needs and case plans to help them to achieve their goals.

The Centre prides its self in promoting an active lifestyle for people of all ages. We have a membership of over 700 from 0-70+.

We offer a range of recreational activities, seven days a week, to the wider demographic of the Alice Springs community. The Centre has successfully operated from a group of old buildings (some dating back to 1947). Our members reflect the population of Alice Springs, everyone is welcome. Some activities attract a fee to cover operational costs, but only survive because they are facilitated by volunteer instructors. If these core activities, and others from hiring the facilities, did not exist the ASYCC would not be able to remain functional, and provide the many vital public access opportunities for sport and Youth social interaction.

The Centre has the following areas: a large dance studio, which is now the home of the Greatorex Public Service Gym; Agnes East Gymnasium (gymnastics and circus space); boxing shed; martial arts dojo; and recreational hall in addition to its outside facilities. Individuals and groups are catered for with a range of classes; including gymnastics, boxing, 5 disciplines of martial arts – all taught by qualified instructors. The recreational hall provides pool tables, TVDVD player and also caters for refreshments from a canteen area. There is a boxing shed with boxing bags, weights and even a ring where Alice Springs boxing champions James Swan, Jason Lord and Henry Collins have inspired local children.
