Bentley’s Jamie Allchorne is running the Street Ball program, which gives young people a place to hang out and participate in sport, art and dance.

‘Street Ball is a fantastic, inclusive program where young people can participate in activities including basketball tournaments, hip-hop classes, art and leadership workshops,’ she said.

‘There have been some incredible personal success stories resulting from the program.’

The 23-year-old became involved with the PCYC through her training at Challenger Institute, progressing to a paid position.

‘While volunteering at the PCYC I started to gain relationships with the young people, helping them to participate in constructive group activities,’ she said.
