Welcome to post #2 of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston’s “Club at Home!” Every day, we’ll post 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 cooking new recipes, hip-hop dancing, and making beats.
