Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade Offers Back-to-School In-Person Virtual Learning Program
Back-to-school will look different for students in Miami-Dade County this year (Miami-Dade County Public Schools has announced that the 2020–21 school year will resume virtually full-time), but Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade is here to help with its back-to-school in-person virtual learning program!
Through this program, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade is welcoming its youth members to perform their virtual schooling at its Kendall, Hank Kline, South Beach, and Northwest Clubs, while being supervised by youth development professionals, during the 2020-21 school year.
The program is offered to students aged 5–17, and will take place Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–6 p.m., starting Monday, Aug. 31.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade is offering the program to ensure that area youth have access to resources and support that can help bridge the gap for academic, social, and emotional support needed in these uncertain times. The back-to-school in-person virtual learning program also gives parents of youth members the opportunity to go back to work.
The program includes activities such as daily virtual school assistance, assignment assistance, STEM, mentoring, sports and games, Teen Center, arts & crafts, homework help, snacks, lunch, recess, and school breaks.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing efforts/CDC guidelines, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade is offering the program in groups of nine youth members. The organization is monitoring updates from Miami-Dade County, Miami-Dade County Public Schools and public health officials, and will continue to respond based on their guidelines.
In addition, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade is extending its “Virtual Club,” which began at the end of last school year, so that its youth members can participate in fun activities virtually. The virtual programming includes story time, STEM, arts and crafts, physical fitness, yoga, homework assistance, mentoring, social-emotional learning, “virtual get togethers” and much more. All activities are conducted via Zoom and schedules vary by Club and age group. Virtual activities are offered Monday–Friday from 2–6 p.m. in 40-minute sessions. Once the back-to-school in-person virtual learning program fills up, participants will be referred to the “Virtual Club.”
