Apollo Youth Club was started in 1972 by a group of young black people to provide a service for young black people who, for a variety of reasons, were not accessing the existing youth service provision. It now provides a range of educational, play and leisure services to children and families (primarly but not exclusively from the African Caribbean community) which includes a homework club, after school and holiday clubs, a karate club, Zumba Fitness Class and work placements for young people involved with the youth offending service. It also participates in local events such as the Children’s Festival and West Reading Carnival.
