PCYC NSW is asking Mountain residents to be a star for youth mental health. The StarJump Challenge, which debuted last year, is raising funds to support GRIT (Growth-Mindset Resilience Intervention for Teenagers), PCYC’s mental resilience program for young people. Sign up for Star Jump every day of Youth Week April 3-10 to raise funds and raise awareness for the GRIT program. Following the success of the program’s pilot, this year the organization is focused on expanding it to additional areas and continuing to serve at-risk youth across the state. GRIT emphasizes physical well-being, emotional and social intelligence. Participants are asked to challenge themselves to a Star Jump every day between April 3rd and April 10th, engage their community and share on social media. Register to participate at https://www.pcycstarjumpchallenge.org.au/. You’ll get all the information you need, along with tips on fundraising, training, and planning. Get your community involved. Ask friends, family, neighbors, schools, sports clubs and co-workers for support. You can ask them to jump with you in a team or fundraise individually. Because PCYC is a life-changing charity founded in 1937, all donations are tax-deductible. Then start jumping. You decide what you wear, what music you play, where you jump and who you jump with. Share pictures and videos with the hashtag #pcycstarjumpchallenge and try to collect as much as possible for a chance to win some great prizes.
