The Power Community Youth Program is an initiative of the South Australian Government and the Port Adelaide Football Club and was established in 1999 by four-time Magarey Medallist and club legend, Russell Ebert as the first educational in-schools program administered by an AFL club.

Port Adelaide Football Club players, staff and female athletes from a variety of sports promote messages on healthy lifestyle choices, encourage inclusive and respectful relationships, promote inclusion and develop young people’s understanding and skills in problem solving.

The program supports the South Australian Department for Education’s Wellbeing for Learning and Life Framework and the National STEM School Education strategy.
