What's On


Cessnock Youth Centre and Outreach Service (CYCOS) is an initiative of Cessnock City Council.

CYCOS provides a range of supervised social, recreational and educational activities, offering opportunities that foster personal growth for young people aged 12-20 years. The youth centre and all of the activities and excursions we run are drug and alcohol free. To maintain a safe environment for the young people at the centre, we encourage non-violent behaviour.

CYCOS seeks to provide a service which is responsive to the needs of the young people in the area. Reflecting needs identified in Council’s Social Plan as well as through direct consultation with the young people of Cessnock LGA, currently we offer centre based programs as well as support, information and referral.

CYCOS Youth Centre is an all abilities venue that provides opportunities for young people alike to participate in programs regardless of their mental or physical abilities. The Centre is a relaxed place, supervised by youth workers which young people can call their own.

 CYCOS is an accessible and inclusive space. accessible entrance is via the ramp from turner park car park to front entry of the building. Accessible toilets are located inside the youth centre.
