Tomaree Youth Community Action Inc.
Empowering Port Stephens' youth to fulfil their potential.
Tomaree Youth Community Action (TYCA)
Was founded back in January 1999.
At the time it was an action group called Salamander Youth Resources Centre.(SYRC). SYRC was created to provide the youth in the area with a permanent skate facility & youth drop in centre. This has been a challenge that the committee is still working towards and has recently partnered with other organisations to help make this a reality.
Our Name Change
On the 8th June 2010 SYRC changed it's name to
Tomaree Youth Community Action Inc. (TYCA).
TYCA’s volunteers have worked tirelessly ever since to bring a variety of workshops and events to the youth of Port Stephens as well as continuing to raise awareness and work towards making a youth drop in centre & indoor skate facility a reality.
TYCA has held music workshops, DJ workshops, visual art wokshops, skate n scooter skill workshops, Snak n Rap events and TYCA's yearly Skate n Scooter competition. With our youth driven sub-committee TYCA continues to expand with a variety of workshops including robotics & coding workshops, street art workshops, an entrepreneurial challenge, digital technologies workshops & skill workshops in areas like mechanics & cooking.
These are just a few of the workshops and events planned for the future. If you would like to SUPPORT TYCA or have an idea you would like to submit to TYCA that you believe our youth will benefit from please fill in our PROJECT IDEA FORM for our committee to consider.
