After School Experience

Boys & Girls Club of Newark offers daily after school programming from dismissal until 7:00 p.m.  During that time, members participate in a variety of academic, social and recreational activities that focus on Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles.

Each week, BGCN members will receive four hours of homework support through Power Hour, two hours of STEM-based programming (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), two and a half hours of physical activity through Triple Play and 2 hours of social skill-building through SMART Moves. Members also receive a daily snack that complies with USDA My Plate standards. Over the course of the academic year, BGCN members will receive 148 extra hours of homework support, 92.5 hours of physical activity, 74 hours of STEM-based activities and 74 hours of social skill building.
