Permanently closing the 29 N. 3rd Street Duquesne-West Mifflin Boys & Girls Club (DWM) and shifting into a partnerships with the Duquesne City School District will impact in a negative way the out-of-school time programming for the Duquesne & West Mifflin community.

Allegheny County Department of Human Service Youth Promise Grants are used to cover the fees for all youth to attend the DWM Boys & Girls Club. This includes summer day camp for youth Kindergarten through 8th grade. 

If the 3rd Street DWM Boys & Girls Club closes, there will not be free in person  programming this summer. The partnership with the Duquesne City School will only be offering summer online programming for Duquesne students who are In kindergarten through second grade. 

If the 3rd Street DWM Boys & Girls Club closes it’s doors, the only community center that is open to the community, will no longer be able to help the Families.

The 3rd Street DWM Boys & Girls Club, for over 30 years has helped the Duquesne West Mifflin community by hiring residents from the community that understand our children needs. This is a place in the community that children do not have to walk through metal detectors or worry about being judged but they feel safe and welcome. This is a place that CYF feels is a safe place for kids in the system to attend. The 3rd Street, DWM Boys & Girls Club is a place where judicated youth have an opportunity to fulfill their obligation to society by completing work hours in a structured environment.

Currently there are two after school programs that operate in the city of Duquesne. By closing the 3rd Street DWM Club, you will be limiting the resources for the Duquesne-West Mifflin communities The Boys & Girls Club will no longer be “THE CLUB THAT BEATS THE STREETS” because it will now be sending KIDS BACK TO THE STREETS!
