PCYC Bornhoffen

3510 Nerang Murwillumbah Road

Natural Bridge QLD 4211

TARGET: Young males aged 14-15 at risk of exclusion from education

FUNDING SOURCE: Funds raised by Asteros Association

PARTNER SINCE: 2007

Asteros is a Greek word for ‘shining star’.

 

PCYC Bornhoffen works with the Asteros Association to provide intervention programs for young people at risk of exclusion from mainstream education. Young people are referred/selected from across a number of Catholic Education high schools on the Gold Coast. The Asteros program is a two part outdoor experience - a three day introductory program and a five day journey-based program. Our staff work in partnership with Dr Jeff Kemp (school counsellor and Churchill Fellow) to facilitate the program.

 

The program has evolved and strengthened over time. In addition to the outdoor program components, it also includes a follow up residential experience, ongoing counselling/support as well as a parent skilling/support program.
