School Holiday program Policy

Generally, more people book for excursions than can attend. AYC must select who can attend. We try to be fair and share the opportunities across all applicants. AYC assesses each application in accordance with the eligibility criteria listed below and desires to give all an opportunity.


Auburn Youth Centre gives priority to thse who are disadvantaged and residing in the Cumberland LGA. The criteria for determining this is based on:

  • Being on a Government benefit
  • Being from a low income household
  • Being an unattended minor
  • School age

Failure to attend Excursions:

  • Places are valuable and excursions are generally prepaid. Please notify us 48 hours before the excursion if you cannot attend. Failure to do so will mean that you will not be able to attend excursions in next school holidays. This policy is aimed at ensuring that money and opportunity is not wasted.

In House Activities

We require all applicants to be aged between 12-21 or as otherwise noted in the program.

Centre based programs sometimes ask for registrations. If you wish to participate in these programs you must register. We do this so we can be sure that we have enough resources available.

Young people can drop in to the Centre over the holidays. However, if they are not registered when required for an activity, they will not be able to participate.

Registration Deadline:

There is a strict deadline for all applications, that being 1 week before the activity.  Registration forms MUST be submitted to AYC by this deadline or applicants may be unable to participate in set programming.

Notification of places:

Excursions: People will be notified (by phone or email) on which excursions they can attend.

Centre based programs: Please assume that you have gained a place. You will only be notified if you have not gained a place in the activity.


Please prepare own lunch (food & drink) for all the excursions. Please wear appropriate clothes and bring sunscreen.

Free lunch will be provided for some drop-in activities
