Health & Safety

  • Responding to Possible and Confirmed Cases of COVID-19

Parents & caregivers will also be required to sign a copy of Boys & Girls Club of Bend COVID-19 Parent Waiver


Attendance

In order to run programs this fall, BGC must operate as an Emergency Child Care provider with limited cohort sizes. This means that we can no longer accommodate the flexible model where families send their children on a drop in basis. Capacity is limited, so the expectation is that Club members attend on a relatively full time basis so that we can maximize our services for those who need regular care. Granted, we understand that there will be occasional absences for various reasons.


About Club+

Club+ is filling the gaps created by COVID-19 for the most vulnerable youth in our community by: (1) increasing service hours due to school closures/partial schedules, (2) providing support for comprehensive distance learning, (3) ensuring food security, and (4) building social-emotional skills. BGCB provides tutoring and homework help so youth can close learning gaps and stay on track academically. In order to support distance learning, BGCB is providing educational assistance through a robust partnership with the school district, and ensuring broadband access and technology.

At our Downtown Bend Club we are providing four full days of care for the youth we serve as long as youth are engaged in Comprehensive Distance Learning and schools are closed. This will allow for a smooth transition to serving two separate cohorts of youth when schools move to a hybrid model with a combination of in-person and distance learning. The needs of our members at our East Bend Club differ slightly, so there we are providing five partial days of programming. Our capacity initially is 135 youth in grades K-5 and up to 36 youth in 6-12. As schools move to a hybrid model, BGCB will be able to double the number of youth served for grade levels that transition to hybrid learning.

Through generous support from our donors, we are providing scholarships to 90% of the youth in our program today. We have had great success in mitigating childhood traumas by helping children to build a toolkit of attributes and experiences that increase skills for responding to adversity with resilience. Our Club programs and services promote and enhance childhood development by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
