Having been firmly entrenched in the community since 1870, Port Adelaide's guiding mantra is simple: We Exist To Win Premierships and Make Our Community Proud.
As the most successful league football club in Australia, Port Adelaide joined the AFL in 1997 and has continued to build on its community focus through work in schools, youth groups and with South Australia's Aboriginal and multicultural communities to build greater social cohesion in Adelaide and beyond.
Power Community Ltd is the community development arm of the Port Adelaide Football Club and was created in 2010 as a Company Limited by Guarantee. The establishment of Power Community Ltd inspired by the precedent of community trusts established by English soccer clubs and delivers the vision to broaden Port Adelaide's impact beyond the sports field.
Today, Power Community Ltd employs eight full-time staff members.
Programs are focussed on youth and Aboriginal program pillars and reach a variety of audiences including those in metropolitan Adelaide through to remote communities in South Australia and the Northern Territory.
