Before / After School

Did a parent or teacher ever tell you, “If you’re bored, it’s your own fault?” At the Boys & Girls Club, boredom isn’t an option!  Staff members plan fun-filled afternoons that incorporate everything from painting and playing games to cooking and community service.  Structured activities are mixed with supervised recreation to ensure members enjoy down time as well as opportunities for learning and enrichment. Our caring counselors encourage even the shyest members to step outside their comfort zone.

We want the club experience to make a difference.  That’s why we follow the Boys & Girls Club’s Formula for Impact which focuses on three priority outcome areas: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles.  Every spring, members complete an anonymous survey that helps our staff determine if members are progressing toward our priority outcomes.

Activity Areas

All our clubs incorporate activities in the following core program areas. 

  • Character & Leadership Development
  • Education & Career Development
  • Health & Life Skills
  • The Arts
  • Sports, Fitness & Recreation

Program Names

Junior Program vs. Senior Program

We group members by grade level into the Junior and Senior programs.  The grouping varies by locations; some sites have separate spaces for K-5 and 5-8.  Some locations keep all members in one group.  Activities offered are appropriate to members’ developmental needs.

Drop In Program

Our three main clubhouses welcome youth in grades 9-12 on a drop-in basisMembers in grades K-8 are not allowed to leave the clubhouse until they are picked up by a parent or guardian.

Snacks and Meals

Snacks are included at all our sites and dinner is included at the Greater Concord, Suncook and Lakes Region clubhouses. Cold breakfast and brown bag lunch are available during summer months only at some sites.
