Tween/Teen Program (Grades 6-12)

Tween / Teen Afterschool Program (Grades 6-12)

Here at the Club, we want our tween and teen members to have a fun, safe and enjoyable place to come after school and over school vacations. By providing them with a positive place they can call their own, a place that allows them to hang out with friends and encourages them to engage in productive activities, we encourage them to make positive choices.  And by making positive choices, teens are on their way to becoming independent young adults.

If you have any question about our Tween/Teen programs, please contact Stephanie Urio, Director of Teen Programs,
at 516-676-1460 Ext. 213, stephanie.urio@gbbgc.org.
