After School Programs

Power Hour 

 

Power Hour: An hour each day that is dedicated to studying, homework and academics.

This gives our students the opportunity to get homework help and ask questions when needed. The support they receive allows them to feel confident in their studies and helps them grow tremendously.

Volunteers

Volunteers contribute greatly to our members and to our club. One way that they help is by tutoring our youth during after-school hours, motivating them to finish their homework and reminding them that they are capable.

Gardening & Nutrition

 

Teaching health & nutrition is one of our core values. Our garden features fruits and vegetables planted by our youth and master growers. Children learn the basics of gardening and are able to cook or take home food that they grew themselves! This program has won the Delaware County Youth Gardening award and continues to make an impact in the lives of youth everyday.

Cookbooks & Recipes

At the end of this program, personal cookbooks featuring recipes to try are available for $10. The BGCC currently grows over 30 different fruits and vegetables as well as nine herbs. Weekly newsletters are provided to parents about the garden, along with recipes of dishes that the youth made during the week.

My. Future

 

My.Future is an academic program designed to help children excell in their learning. Members get to spend time doing online work in our computer lab. This program prepares them for their futures and their careers.

Computer Labs

Our labs are distraction free-zones filled with state-of-the-art technology. This helps us achieve the goal of providing an adequare learning environment for our members.

21st Century Learning Community

 

21st Century Learning Community is a federally funded program focused on the academic development of our young people. This program is full of activities that expand the mind and teach creativity, teamwork, and excellence.

Tutoring

As always, we provide support to our members during each part of their journey. Our staff and volunteers help lead activities and help children when assistance is needed.

Basketball

 

Our George E. Carter Spring League is a great way for our members to stay physically fit and active, as well as develop their basketball skills. Our atheltic directors and volunteers help run this league and train our members. Youth that participate in this program get to compete and play in various different basketball games and drills.

76ers Partnership

We are proud to partner with the Philadelphia 76ers to offer basketball programs such as the dunk team event and other experiences.

Recreational & Instructional Activities

 

Fun and play are such key aspects of a child's life. We provide a safe space for children to learn teamwork, grow friendships, and have fun by playing games. We have a variety of game tables such as air hockey, billiards, fooz-ball, and ping-pong. We also provide activities such as tennis, lacrosse, soccer, cheerleading, dance, weightlifting, and engineering.

 

Games like these help our members stay active physically, mentally, and socially — three areas that are immensely important to maintaing and developing one's well-being, and therefore, three areas that are immensely important to us as a club.

Mentorship

 

Every individual needs someone to look up to. A leader to follow. An example and role model. Someone to guide them along the way. This is key to a person's development and growth. Our federally funded mentorship program does exactly that. Through this program, members get to connect with someone that is a few steps ahead of them in the journey.

Safety is Priority.


The Safety and Wellbeing of Young People is Our Number One Priority. Our members are the reason we do the work that we do. We work every day to create a safe, fun environment so kids can have every opportunity to be successful in life.
