Sponsored - Since COVID struck back in May of 2020, we have been able to waive fees for all of our Club members. This has allowed both current and new members of essential workers to have access to virtual learning, homework help, tutoring, academic enrichment programs, healthy lifestyles programming, social and emotional support, fun activities, and more.
This was due in large part to Boys & Girls Clubs in Tennessee’s partnership with Tennessee Department of Human Services (TNDHS) and Governor Lee. Through the Emergency Childcare for Essential Service Workers, those children that meet the criteria of the contract are covered through TNDHS and Governor Lee’s support. To be fair, we decided locally to extend that to all of our kids without reimbursement. We wanted to do that for all of our families and will continue to do so as long as funds are available.
We are happy to report that this program has been extended through 8/31/2021. We will be able to offer our summer program free of charge as long as funds are available up to that end date. It is very important to note that to receive those funds the child needs to be enrolled and actively participating before 4/30/2021. So please call 865-232-1200 or drop by your Club to complete a registration packet before that date.
