Our Club members are our family – and we want to safeguard them and their households to the best of our best abilities. As you know, Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced additional actions for our state to protect and support Indiana residents during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Our organization implemented Club closures because we knew doing so was in the best interest of your children. During this unprecedented time, we have enhanced our procedures and protocols, including cleaning and disinfecting Clubs, as well as communicating with staff best practices of hygiene and social distancing to do our part in flattening the pandemic curve.
As this virus has caused much uncertainty and schools are now closed through May 1, our Clubs also will be closed until then.
Our organization is evaluating our Club services and how we can remain connected with our Club members by providing them with the best possible Club Experience during their out-of-school time.
Beginning soon, we will be providing Club services virtually!
That’s right – your child(ren) will be able to participate in homework help/tutoring sessions, career and workforce sessions, and SMART Kids with Club staff they know so well. Additionally, we will continue to share fun STEM and healthy lifestyle activities virtually so that your child(ren) can remain active and curious like they are at our Clubs.
Our virtual programs connect with Club staff and will be conducted through our Clubs’ Facebook pages. If you have not followed your Club’s group page – I encourage you to do so! We will be providing you more information about virtual programming and how your child(ren) can interact.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana knows the value of out-of-school time for kids, and we are dedicated to helping our Club members stay on course toward their GREAT Future.
