We will feature a different organization on the home page every month to put a spotlight on the tremendous efforts being made to increase the quality of life for Holyoke Residents. This month's featured organization is the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holyoke.
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke is committed to the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development of all youth, with special concern for those in need. The Boys & Girls Club helps youth reach their full potential in order to develop the qualities needed to become responsible students, citizens, and leaders … we serve as a vigorous advocate for their needs.
We serve youth between the ages of 6 and 18 with several programs throughout the city of Holyoke. These include a year-round licensed childcare program in the Main Club facility; an evening drop-in membership program which includes a teen center; satellite programs in four Holyoke Housing Authority communities; “Games Clubs” in two Holyoke Public middle schools through the 21st century program; and evening recreation programs in several elementary schools.
Eligibility: Our licensed program has a sliding fee; our satellite programs are free to Holyoke Housing Authority residents; our evening membership program costs $10 for the season. Our programs take place in English; however, most of our staff are bi-lingual in English and Spanish.
