We are Port Adelaide


The Powerful Futures Program which was established in 2016 is a school to work/ tertiary education-based program ran by the Port Adelaide Football Club through Power Community Limited and in partnership with the South Australian Government.

Powerful Futures helps transition students who have completed one of our programs and are ready to take the next steps into the workforce or study. Working with our business networks and Universities, we source employment and training opportunities and work with our graduated students to help place them in those roles or higher education pathways.

The opportunities come in the form of:

  • Traineeships
  • Apprenticeships
  • Full time
  • Part time
  • Casual
  • Study
  • Work experience
  • Mentoring
  • Information days
  • Facility tours
  • Volunteering

A range of soft social supports are provided to young people to ensure the graduates are employment/ study ready. To participate in Powerful Futures, students need to complete their PAFC program, pass Stage 2 SACE and have a 90% or above attendance records. To date PAFC have successfully placed 122 graduates into employment and a further 57 into TAFE or University.
