Friends since they were in grade three, the girls – 14 and 15 years old – are familiar faces at PYCC, bringing with them a passion to learn and try new things. Since it opened in 2011 the Centre has been recognized as a place of opportunity and a great resource to community residents young and old. For the past three years, Tata and Fana have been participating in a number of different programs offered at PYCC – including the Mulgrave Magic summer program, Homework Club and Girls Group.
