Former Canberra Raiders prop Jeff Lima has wasted no time settling into life after football having become a Youth Worker with the Canberra Police Community Youth Club (PCYC).

“It’s good to come and work here with the PCYC,” Lima said. “It’s a little bit challenging with the kids but at the end of the day, if they get a bit of a smile on their face and there’s a little bit of change, I think I’ve done my job.”

Since starting the role, Lima has been using his profile as a footballer to help the children who are disengaged with school.

“I help them with their school work, talk about footy obviously, play a little bit of sport afterwards and take them out on adventures,” Lima said.
