The Cessnock LGA is a great place for young people to grow up, with a number of initiatives, events and activities to occupy their time. The Cessnock Youth Centre and Outreach Service (CYCOS) is an initiative of Cessnock City Council which is hugely popular with our youth. CYCOS provides a range of supervised social, recreational and educational activities, offering opportunities that foster personal growth for young people. Currently there are programs on offer at the two drop-in locations and in local schools and the CYCOS team also provide additional support, information and referral. The Aberdare Centre based activities include: • pool tables and monthly pool competition • art activities including beading, painting, card making and mask decorating • computers, free WiFi and Playstation games • movie nights • BBQ and cooking activities • karaoke • sporting activities • board games and cards CYCOS seeks to provide a service which is responsive to the needs of the young people in the area. It is a relaxed service which young people can call their own and is supervised by a friendly team of youth workers.
