Our Staff

Registration and Enrollment
Club members must be enrolled by a parent/guardian. There is no registration fee. Enrollment forms must be completed and on file to officially register your child in the program. 

Parent Involvement
The Boys & Girls Club of Newburgh is a partner in caring for your child after school and we  believe that parents play an important role in their child's education.We encourage parents to communicate with program staff about their child's academic progress and provide ongoing feedback about the program. Parents can get involved by volunteering, attending special events, joining the Parent Advisory Council, or attending parent workshops. Parent involvement, including a parent orientation, is required in order for your child to remain in the program.

Snack & Council Time
Club members enjoy a nutritious snack while they sit down with their group leaders and peers for "council time". During council time Club members have time to sit back and relax while they discuss how their day went, tackle a "Question of the Day" or participate in a team-building challenge.

Homework Help and Tutoring 
Students work individually, peer-to-peer, or with a volunteer tutor to complete homework and increase academic success. Homework is reviewed by their classroom teacher.

Academic Enrichment
Each day our students receive hands-on and engaging academic instruction in order to strengthen and reinforce the academic skills taught during the school day which include homework help & tutoring, academic instruction and enrichment activities. 

We offer students the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities in areas such as visual and performing arts, science & technology, digital media, culinary cuisine, fashion, dance, team sports and more.
