The importance of STEM (or Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) has never been more evident than in the face of recent events. Our goal is to prepare our children for the workplace of the 21st century where skills and fluency in technology are required. Studies show that kids benefit from learning STEM afterschool in a relaxed atmosphere with no tests. Your donation would help us to provide:

  • Much needed upgrades for equipment and software
  • Trips, materials and supplies
  • Specialized staff and staff training

Food – Snack and Dinner

Many local families have suffered food insecurity in the face of job losses due to COVID-19. During the shutdown, we have joined other community groups through NOSH to deliver food to those in need. After the shutdown, this important work will continue. When we reopen our afterschool program, children will need a nourishing snack to focus and to learn. Your generous donation will provide:

  • Ahealthy and nutritious snack and beverage for each child
  • 40,000 snacks throughoutthe school year
  • Food for more than 200 children every afternoon

Membership at GBBGC means so much. Our annual membership fee includes Homework Help, Project Learn, and a vast array of top-notch programs at no extra cost. However, for our families who face economic setbacks at this time, the cost of membership can present a challenge.  Please support Club membership to:

  • Provide affordable afterschool care for those who need it most
  • Give each young member a sense of belonging and pride, and
  • Make sure that no child is turned away.

In addition to academic and logistical challenges, reopening schools and afterschool programs will pose questions and concerns about the physical and emotional safety of our members, families and staff. Please help us to safeguard everyone with the following important measures:

  • Use of face masks, gloves, and hand washing stations,
  • Disinfecting all furnishings and equipment,
  • Social distancing in all play and study areas, and
  • Additional staff and staff training.
