Friday, March 27, 2020

Happy Fun Friday! In post #5 of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston’s “Club at Home,” we share content that brings Club programs, traditions, and staff into the homes of members. Our goal is to provide the same fun and educational activities to our Club members and families, even while Clubs are physically closed. 

Today, we check in with staff from our Clubs who share different activities for members across all age groups, including trivia, draw-your-own anime, fairy houses, and a Kahoot Challenge.

If you or a family member needs mental health services during this time, Boston Public Schools has shared some useful options for care. BPS also announced Wednesday that schools will remain closed until May 4, 2020. BPS continues to provide Chromebooks to BPS students who need one.
