The Boys & Girls Club of Rutland County is excited about its new teen program at our Hickory Street location.
We are opening on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening s at 15 Junebury Street form 5 pm till 8 pm with a nutritious meal served every evening at 5.
The move was made to give teens a safe and fun place to go on Friday and Saturday evening. We offer academic support , job training, including resume writing and offer a program called PREP which is an evidenced based program dealing healthy relationships. We also make it a fun, interactive environment where kids can play basketball, play video games and go on weekly field trips. So far we have visited Burlington Lake Monster games, visited skate parks in Bristol and Burlington, visited Fenway Park and Lake Bomoseen.
This winter we are planning trips to the Boston Garden, Killington and local colleges. The center is open to teens from 13 to 18 and there is a small fee to cover part of the cost for field trips.
