The Latrobe and Districts Youth Centre (LDYC) was opened by the Premier, The Hon. E E Reece, MHA, on 12 October 1974.
The finances for the building of the LDYC came from a variety of sources. Significantly, a number of community groups were involved, Rotary, Apex, Lions, local High School, Moriarty CWA, Catholic Schools Mothers Club, Goliath Cement, Latrobe Council and the Commonwealth Government.
The LDYC comprises 1 full size basketball court, complete with lines for badminton. volleyball, basketball and netball.
There are two squash courts, a social clubroom, canteen, men and women's toilets and showers (two sets of each), multipurpose room, meeting room and extra kitchen area.
In 2003 with the Jack and Jill playgroup moving to St Patricks Primary School the LDYC Committee has developed the outdoor play area into a community barbecue facility.
The LDYC has its own developmental plan.
The Latrobe and Districts Youth Centre is co-ordinated by a community volunteer group chaired by the Mayor, Michael Gaffney.
The (Part-time) Manager of the Centre is Mrs Sue Maxfield who can be contacted on 6426 1529.
