Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Clarke County School District has elected to transition to a 100% virtual learning platform for the time being. Many of our youth do not have a produc- tive virtual learning environment at home, leading to a potential widening of the academic achievement gap that afflicts our community. Students need a safe, structured and supervised environment where they can achieve academic success and stay on track.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens has expanded our Club services by offering members, grades 1 to 8, an in-person School Day Learning Hub at our two locations. Members can attend their Virtual School District Classroom at the Club while parents work and earn the resources desperately needed during these challenging times.
The Club Learning Hub Highlights:
100 Boys and Girls served (50 at each location)
Program Hours: 8:00AM to 3:30PM, Mon - Fri
Open on all scheduled school days until such time students physically return to school
Breakfast & Lunch will be provided
