After School Program aimed for youth 12 and under

Due COVID-19 our in person After School program is currently suspended until further notice. We are now offering  Virtual Programming-  Offered Monday-Friday 4:30pm-6:30pm. Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 6:30-7:30 Homework Club is offered for kids who need help with homework. Homework packages are also sent out for kids who don't have homework. The program utilizes several proven strategies to ensure a successful approach including:

• Offering appropriate activities in a culturally diverse setting.
• Offering consistent hours of operation.
• Utilizing relationship building components.
• Providing opportunity to build on individual asset development.

The after school program targets four primary areas of education, nutrition, recreation and vocation.

The intended outcomes of this program will provide lasting benefits including improved academic attendance and behavior, social skills, leadership development, self-esteem, range of interests, positive relationships and a reduction in engagement of less desirable behaviors.

Activities include but are not limited to the following: homework Club, music madness session, curling, arts and crafts, science experiments, drama, field trips, physical activity sessions, junior chefs.

Target Age- School aged children in Kindergarten to Grade six (12 and under)

Average Attendance: Between 30-60 children per night, currently maximum number of children allowed at any given time is 60 due to staff children ratios.

I like the Boys & Girls club because “we get to go to the park, and do fun activities” like “bowling.” I come to the Boys & Girls club “because its lots of fun and I get to draw lots of pictures.” My favorite activity at the Boys & Girls club is “making crafts.” My favorite snack that the Boys & Girls club has to offer is “muffins.”
