The Keystone Centre, which changed its name from Littlehampton Boys Club in 1992, has been providing a variety of activities for young people since 1976 and has the aim of helping and educating young people through their leisure-time activities. With a strong heritage of sporting achievements including boxing, pool, and table-tennis, the centre now boasts a number of other facilities including an outdoor multi-use games area, cafe, plus versatile meeting and TV rooms. To achieve our aim, the Keystone Centre sets out to:
- Promote opportunities for young people to be involved in decisions about their own lives, those of their peers and their local community.
- Provide opportunities for young people to participate in a wide variety of enjoyable, stimulating and challenging experiences and activities that may also assist them to understand the personal and social issues affecting their lives.
- Involve young people in situations that encourage the development of responsibility, maturity and self-confidence.
- Give young people the chance to take part in the affairs of their youth group in order to develop an interest in the issues surrounding them locally, nationally and internationally, promoting an increase in engagement, responsibility, self-confidence and self-esteem.
- Give young people the opportunity of learning a skill or finding an interest which they can carry with them into their adult lives.
