Volunteers wanted for youth cafe

MAREEBA PCYC has recently opened the Pulse Cafe youth drop-in centre open seven days a week from 6pm until late.

Mareeba PCYC Youth Co-ordinator Mary-Anne West is encouraging locals to volunteer at the Pulse Cafe.

The Café will offer free entertainment, food, games and music throughout the night at risk youths needed a safe place. 

Mareeba Shire Mayor Angela Toppin volunteered last Thursday night, with about 20 or so kids rolling in for the night entertainment. 

She said that she enjoyed volunteering and helping where she can and that she strongly encourages others to do so. 

The community have come together to help support the Pulse Café, including Signature Pies, the Hungry Pug, Brumby’s Bakery and many individuals donating food. 

All youth wishing to attend must follow Covid requirements, with kids over the age of 12 required to also wear a mask. 

If you would like to volunteer at the Pulse Cafe, contact Mary-Anne West via email on
