Supporting Boys & Girls Clubs During Coronavirus

With the suspension of many schools and workplaces throughout the world because of the COVID-19 pandemic, every one of us is facing challenges unlike anything we’ve encountered before. In this critical time, Boys & Girls Clubs of America is dedicated to supporting the public in whatever way we can.

Right now around the country, Boys & Girls Clubs are providing important services to help communities navigate this new and challenging climate, some are facilitating provision of meals and, in some cases, lending support to families of medical workers. Clubs have always played an important role in communities, and that is no different today.

To slow the spread of the coronavirus, those who can have been advised to stay home and practice social distancing. To help you through this, Boys & Girls Clubs of America would like to share with you our Youth Development Toolbox app. Used regularly by Club staff, YD Toolbox includes lots of fun activities and learning opportunities for your children to engage in at home.

We also are providing access to our premier online learning platform with our national partner Comcast NBCUniversal, MyFuture. Families and caregivers can access these digital resources to learn, create, play, and learn valuable skills like coding and digital arts.

This is an unprecedented moment in our lives, with situations changing continuously. To come through this crisis successfully requires that each of us does their part to slow and prevent the spread of the coronavirus. So, please, keep washing your hands, keep practicing social distancing, and keep doing everything you can to ensure the safety of your families and the general public.

Sincerely,

Jim Clark
