After-School Services

Boys and Girls Club of Somerset County, along with the Eagle View Community Center, provides a safe, educational environment for the children in our community.

Non-Profit Organization

Boys and Girls Club of Somerset County is a non-profit organization, solely funded through the help of our generous community and various grant awards, including the 21st Century Community Learning Grant.

STEAM learning for 21st Century Skills

Members of our after-school program will enjoy their time as we engage in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math to build thier critical thinking and problem solving skills.

The importance of after-school programs

 

Boys and Girls Club of Somerset County aims to bridge the critical after-school hours from 3pm-6pm, when many parents are not out of work and the children of our community need a safe place to receive a snack, homework help, enrichment activities, and physical exercise. Research suggests that this after-school structure is healthy for kids and anxiety-reducing for parents and guardians.  To read more about the importance of afterschool programs in rural areas, please feel free to contact us at 814-444-7252 to tour our facility or ask questions. We've also provided a link to current research on rural after-school programs. We look forward to hearing from you!
