After-School Program

Welcome to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula’s After-School Program, where we redefine after-school care as comprehensive and holistic programming. We understand that after the bell rings, children need more than just a place to stay; they need an enriching environment that fosters growth and development in various aspects of their lives.

Our After-School Program goes beyond mere childcare, offering a structured schedule that aligns with the school district calendar, providing parents with a reliable option for after-school activities. Whether you’re in Newport News, Hampton, York, Gloucester, James City, or Mathews, you can count on us to be there for your child.

Upon arrival, children are served a nutritious meal to fuel their bodies and minds for the activities ahead. From there, they dive into our 5-Core Areas of initiatives, covering education, health and wellness, leadership and service, sports and recreation, and the arts. Each core area is carefully designed to engage and inspire children, nurturing their academic, physical, and social-emotional development.

At the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula, we believe in providing a safe and supportive environment where children can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Join us in empowering the next generation to reach their full potential, one after-school session at a time.

Curriculum Initiatives Include:

  • Education
  • Health & Wellness
  • Leadership & Service
  • Sports & Recreation
  • The Arts

Location and Schedule: Our Program times and locations are tailored to accommodate the needs of different school districts, ensuring accessibility for families across the Virginia Peninsula.

While our After-School Programming is offered free of charge to all participants, we require each child to become a member of the Club, which involves a nominal annual registration fee of $25. This fee helps support the operational costs of our programs and ensures that we can continue to provide high-quality experiences for all children in our community.

As a member of the Club, children gain access to a wide range of benefits beyond just the After-School Program, including opportunities for additional enrichment activities, special events, and outings. Moreover, membership fosters a sense of belonging and community among participants, encouraging them to take pride in being part of something bigger than themselves.

We understand that financial constraints can sometimes be a concern for families, which is why we strive to keep our registration fee affordable. Our goal is to make our programs accessible to as many children as possible, regardless of their socioeconomic background, so that every child has the chance to thrive and succeed.
