Your Voice Determines the Fate of our Boys & Girls Club. Please sign below to support the creation of a new Boys & Girls Club in Germantown at 23-53 W Penn Street.
Today, the current Boys & Girls Club facility in Germantown stands in disrepair limiting the quality and impact of youth programming:
- Severe water incursion on the lower-level of the building makes a large portion of the facility, including the former gym and art studio uninhabitable.
- Remnants of the former pool and pool house pose both safety and security risks.
- Out-dated electrical systems throughout the facility constrict the use of digital technology
- The run-down kitchen does not allow for on site meal preparation.
- Restricted space limits teen programming to the hours of 6pm-8pm
A new Club will Bring
- A Kids Cafe to provide hot meals 500 youth on a daily basis
- The Literacy Center will teach youth to read using a multi-sensory approach to language
- A Full sized gym to host basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer and more!
- A dedicated Teen Center to help older youth on the path to academic and professional success!
- A weight room and fitness center
- A My.Future Technology Center giving youth access to 21st century skills and resources.
