Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County are accepting registrations for after-school programs that begin Aug. 10 at six locations across the county.
Clubs provide homework assistance and tutoring services, as well as project-based learning activities, arts instruction, sports and recreation programs, and service and leadership projects. Clubs also offer technology centers to enhance learning and play.
“Parents want a safe, affordable and convenient location for an after-school program, but they’re looking for more than just a responsible adult to watch their children for a few hours,” said Denise Gergley, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County. “Our clubs offer high-quality programming that serves as an extension of the school day, with a goal of helping children and teens reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.”
After-school programs are designed for youth ages six through 18 and focus on five core areas: education and career, service and leadership, health and wellness, the arts, and sports and recreation. Snacks are provided daily.
