Portarlington Youth Club has provided a safe place for young people to hang out, learn and develop for over 10 years. Most of you may not be aware that they have been unable to re-open as normal this September as they do not have enough volunteer leaders. They are holding a public meeting on Wednesday October 7 at 8pm in the community centre. This meeting is to highlight their current challenges and asking the Community for support to sustain the future of the Youth Club. They would urge anyone who believes that they need this club for the young people in the community to come out and support them.
