Important changes coming to Elementary Clubhouse starting in the 2017-18 school year
The BGCC Clubhouse is a safe and positive place, where children from nearly 900 families participate in afterschool programs including homework help, music, fitness, and more. Starting in September 2017, due to increasing staffing and healthcare costs, there will be a monthly Clubhouse fee for elementary youth. The one-time annual membership fee will be reduced from $25 to $10 per year and the monthly fees will range from $150/month to $25/month, depending on family size and household income. Approximately 90% of current afterschool participants will qualify for a reduced fee based on their family size and income. Registration will open August 1st, 2017
Importante actualización del Club de Niños y Niñas de Corvallis:
El Clubhouse de BGCC es un lugar seguro y positivo, donde los niños de casi 900 familias participan en programas después de clases, incluyendo ayuda con las tareas, música, fitness y más. A partir de septiembre del 2017, debido al aumento de los costos de personal y atención médica, habrá una cuota mensual de Clubhouse para los estudiantes de primaria. La cuota anual de membresía se reducirá de $ 25 a $ 10 por año y los honorarios mensuales oscilarán entre $ 150 / mes a $ 25 / mes, dependiendo del tamaño de la familia y los ingresos del hogar. Aproximadamente el 90% de los actuales participantes después de la escuela seguirán calificando para una tarifa reducida basada en el tamaño de su familia y sus ingresos.
Open to students in 1st through 12th grade. Kindergartners must enroll in Club Plus to participate in our program.
Open to all members from the end of the school day until 6:30 PM, Monday thru Thursday and 6:00 PM on Fridays.
Clubhouse programs feature friendly, energetic and fun staff trained to work with specific age groups, utilizing the Boys & Girls Clubs Youth Development Strategy. We have a wide variety of programs including: homework help, art, music, computer lab, and athletic activities for school children of all ages. Incorporated in all programs and activities are the four basic “senses” or feelings which, when possessed by young people, help them build self-esteem and to develop into productive, responsible, caring citizens. These four senses are:
A sense of belonging – a setting where an individual knows he or she has a place and where he or she “fits” and is accepted.
A sense of usefulness – the opportunity to do something of value for other people.
A sense of influence – the chance to be heard and to influence decisions.
A sense of competence – the feeling there is something boys and girls can do, and do well.
Effective August 1st, a elementary Clubhouse membership is $10 per year, with a monthly activity fee based on family size and income. A Middle school membership is $40 per year, with no monthly fee, and a high school membership is free.
