BGCD “Learning Hubs” for Members During Remote School Learning

October 13, 2020

DORCHESTER, MA — Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester is providing safe, supportive and supervised space to assist families in our community during the time children are learning remotely. Our newly developed Learning Hubs support cohorts of k-8 students during typical “school day” hours. The Learning Hub program includes meals, technology assistance, academic support and guidance. Hubs are led by BGCD staff with a focus on supporting the children’s social emotional wellbeing as they adapt to virtual learning. BGCD is such an important resource in the fight against learning loss and a resource for families in great need.

During the day we are incorporating enrichment activities and getting outside as often as possible! With a focus on supporting children’s social-emotional well-being, BGCD staff are providing opportunities for children to engage in the arts, fitness and other health and wellness activities throughout the day.
