With many school districts making the decision to begin the 2020-2021 school year virtually, Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania will now be open during the day to assist youth with virtual school work and provide engaging and enriching programming. We are offering a variety of options to meet your families’ needs. BGCWPA has hired additional staff to support this specialty school year day camp and has experience running in-person programs during the COVID-19 pandemic, so you can feel comfortable placing your children in our Clubhouses. BGCWPA is committing to run this specialty school year day camp for the first semester and will assess as school districts make further decisions.
Please know that BGCWPA has adopted a Health and Safety Plan that aligns to the CDC guidance and recommendations from the Allegheny County Health Department. This plan will be followed at all of our Clubhouses this fall and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Safety is of utmost importance as we reopen for fall programming. All staff will go through COVID screening again prior to the launch of school-year programs to ensure we are COVID negative; we want you to feel confident we have taken every step possible to keep children safe.
