Youth Center – Main Place

Main Place Youth Centre

Patrick Suessmuth, a coach who inspired a generation of Erin kids to have fun, push their limits and believe in themselves, passed away at the age of seventy-five in 2014.

After his passing, a group of volunteers , MAIN PLACE OPTIMISTS OF ERIN (MPO) dedicated to continuing Patrick’s dream by providing basketball and ongoing recreational youth programs in the Town of Erin. MPO ensured his dream would remain viable and sustainable. 

​MPO and East Wellington Community Services had a vision to create a permanent Centre to run youth programs for the Town of Erin. The stated vision for the Centre was to provide recreational, educational, wellness and social programs year-round for our youth.  Our youth need a safe and fun place to recreate outside of school hours.  Main Place Youth Centre aspires to be just that.
