We all need support, direction & motivation

Apollo works on behalf of young people and its members, we promote the rights of those young people and members, focusing on social matters such as Education, Sport, Arts and Culture and other leisure-time activities.

We work in partnership with other organisations and statutory bodies, ensuring that our youth programmes work in partnership and makes a telling contribution to the local and national agendas and Youth Matters policy developments.

Providing support since 1972

The Apollo Youth Club is a voluntary organization and a registered charity, set up in 1972 by a group of young black people living, studying and working in Reading. It plays a key role in providing support for young people in Reading and surrounding areas and its activities are open to the whole community.

How is the Apollo Youth Club managed?

Apollo has a Board of Directors/Trustees who manages the organisation. Representation on the Board comes from people with key skills to enable the organisation to meet its obligations within the voluntary youth sector. The Board meets at least 11 times per year and in addition an Annual General Meeting is held in July.
