Petitioning Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia and 1 other

Sign below to support the creation of a new Boys & Girls Club at 23-53 W Penn Street

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.
  • The Ed Snider Ice Arena providing kids with free skating and hockey instruction and leagues
This petition will be delivered to:
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia
  • Philadelphia Historical Commission
