After School Program

  • Reading
  • Technology
  • Arts
  • Homework Help & Tutoring
  • Recreational and Fitness Activities

Program Overview

The "Project Learn” After School Program, in collaboration with the Massillon City Schools and other community organizations, provides students with homework help and tutoring; high-yield learning activities, enrichment programs and activities and recreation. The "Project Learn” After School Program operates the entire school year.  Daily hours are from after school until 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Club members, who wish to do so, will be able to remain on site for additional recreation activities until 8:00PM each day.
The Boys & Girls Club of Massillon does NOT provide transportation to or from the facility. However, the Massillon City Schools will provide transportation to the Boys & Girls Club of Massillon after school each day if your child attends full time Monday through Friday during the school year.
The "Project Learn” After School Program is the single most popular after school program in Stark County and therefore, demand for spots is limited. We have the capacity to serve 24 children in each grade level. Placement is based upon the grade the child will be entering in the fall. Grade levels include 1st Grade through 8th grade. Members must be at least six years old to register.

Meals

The Boys & Girls Club of Massillon participates in the Child & Adult Care Food Program to provide meals to all of its members. All participants receive a full meal after school each day.

Cost

Free enrollment is included in the Club Membership. All participants must be members of the Boys & Girls Club of Massillon to participate. The annual membership fee is $10.00 which must be renewed annually and expire May 31 of each year.

Tutoring & Homework Help

We offer homework help and tutoring twelve hours weekly. This enables Club members to develop the daily habit of completing homework and preparing for class in a safe, quiet, allocated space with staff and volunteer encouragement and assistance. We use POWER HOUR, a homework help and tutoring program developed by Boys & Girls Clubs of America, to help our members complete their daily school assignments. We will also offer high-yield learning through writing activities, leisure reading and games that sharpen cognitive skills including Scrabble, Monopoly, Chess and the LEGO Building Series.

Enrichment & Recreation Activities

After completing homework each day, members will participate in one structured, age- appropriate enrichment activity each day for six weeks. After six weeks, your child will be enrolled in a different enrichment activity as listed below. We will provide a total of six sessions of six week activities throughout the school year as well as four one-week seasonal / holiday weekly activities in which all after school participants will take part.
