A Rotary Youth Talk presented by our Youth Committee:
My name is Georgia Stirton current manager at PCYC, South Sydney. I have been the manager at South Sydney for just over a year. Before working at PCYC, I lived in the United States for 5 years on a basketball scholarship whilst completing an Associated of Arts degree and a bachelor’s in special education.
After the completion of my college degree and working briefly in the Special needs field, I discovered I had a strong passion and desire to give back and help those in need. Without fully understanding how I could effectively do this I went back to school to complete my master’s in early childhood and Primary Education, believing my calling would be in teaching. After a year of teaching, I further discovered I wanted to work more with communities and at-risk populations.
Through my experiences, I was able to land this role at PCYC where I work every day with extremely at-risk youth and their families. Due to the demographics of South Sydney, PCYC 90% of the children and families I work with are indigenous. As a result, there are many challenges in the community especially around drug use and domestic violence. Working alongside police and implementing my skills I continue to thrive in this role and greatly enjoy working with the youth and families every day. Beyond work, I am passionate about sport, specifically basketball and enjoy my spare time walking.
