At the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club, we provide our members with a safe place to spend time during non-school hours as an alternative to the streets or being home alone. Our members have the chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn. We provide them with opportunities to build new skills that raise each child’s belief that he or she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments. We foster ongoing relationships with caring adults & connections to new friends in a positive environment reinforcing a sense of belonging, personal accountability, civility, and civic responsibility. We strive to bring generation-changing programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits & high expectations for success as an adult.

In accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care (EEC) we are required to provide you with the following information in regards to the Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club After School Program:
1. In order to provide you & your children with flexible hours & an affordable program, this is a drop-in program. Members may attend whenever we are open for their age group.
2. Our program is not licensed by EEC or any other state agency. We adhere to Boys & Girls Clubs of America standards for safety and supervision that frequently align with those of EEC.
3. Our program is a “drop-in program” which requires we have an “open door policy”. Members may arrive at or depart from the program at any time during their time here—because EEC regulations prohibit us from holding children in the Club if they want to leave, however, every attempt will be made to delay their departure while a phone call is placed to the parent and we do not inform the children about this rule imposed on us by EEC.
4. We are not responsible for the care or supervision of children beyond program closing time.
Should you have any questions about these regulations please speak with Chris Roberts or Jessie Damroth.
