Club+, our expanded Club Services program, is filling the gaps created by COVID-19 for 171 local youth, including the most vulnerable in our community. Through a robust partnership with the school district, we are helping kids navigate distance learning and providing comprehensive educational assistance while ensuring broadband access and technology. In a typical school year we already provide tutoring and homework help during after school hours so youth can close learning gaps and stay on track academically. Club+ offers increased service hours during school closures and hybrid schedules. It is a stable environment where youth consistently find academic support, free daily meals, and activities focused on building social-emotional skills to increase their resilience.
Our commitment to the youth we serve and to our Bend community as a whole only gets stronger as this crisis continues. We will continue to step up to serve youth who may otherwise not engage in distance learning, be left in unsafe environments, or whose parents would be unable to provide for their families if they had to stay home. With a dedicated facility and staff, outcome-driven programming, and incredible community partnerships, we are uniquely positioned to meet the need.
Your support helps us keep our fees affordable, providing additional scholarships so that the youth who need the support of Club the most can attend.
