After School Grant Awarded

After School Grant Awarded

Congratulations to the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County, Inc. (B&G Club) for their recent award of $90,171.00 for the provision of after school programming at Hancock Junior/Senior High School and Cascade Elementary School. The B&G Club will provide academic enrichment through homework assistance and tutoring, youth development activities focused on decision-making, conflict resolution, substance abuse and pregnancy prevention programs and development of leadership skills through community projects.
Youth, between the ages of six and eighteen, will be the target of these services. Transportation will be provided on a limited basis at each location on non- school days for field trips and trips to participate in activities at the B&G Club in Hagerstown. The B&G Club will provide youth development programs for out- of-school time Monday through Friday for 39 weeks with a minimum of three hours per day on school days and up to eight hours per day on a non-school weekday. Out-of-school activities will coincide with the traditional school year, including activities on professional days and selected holidays.
