Our three clubhouses are places for Dorchester’s young people to learn, explore talents, play and make friends.
Drop-In Membership includes a rotation of after-school activities with an open-door policy for all members, for only $5 per year. Programming in education, healthy lifestyles, character & leadership, and Safe Summer Streets, with an emphasis on social-emotional learning.
Early Education serves children as young as 8 weeks in a year-round educational setting that continues through Kindergarten.
School-Aged Care is our more structured option for after-school care.
In addition to after-school rotations, every member is invited to register for Evening Enrichment Programs that focus on a specific academic or physical activity, like athletics, swimming, art, music, and more. We offer over 200 programs.
Healthy meals are included in membership, and we serve more than 300 meals per night during the school year and over 700 meals per day during our summer months.
We encourage the educational and social enrichment of children with special needs through Project B.I.N.D. (Boston Inclusion Network for Disabilities).
