THE LAST DAY OF AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMMING OF 2024 WILL BE JUNE 14!

After-School time learning runs Monday thru Friday, from school dismissal time until 6:00pm. The cost for our after-school program is $182.00. Our half-day schedule is noon to 5:00pm. Please be sure to pick your child up by the closing time.

Power Hour

Power Hour helps MVBGC members ages 6-18 achieve academic success by providing homework help, tutoring, and high-yield learning activities and encouraging members to become self-directed learners.

When they finish their work, they may choose to participate in a variety of other engaging and educational activities to further develop their skills.

Power Hour is a great opportunity for kids and teens to get their homework completed in a quiet place with support from trained, caring staff at MVBGC.

Project Learn

Project Learn reinforces the academic enrichment and school engagement of young people during their time at MVBGC.

Students do much better in school when they spend their non-school hours engaged in fun, but academically beneficial, activities. Through Project Learn, MVBGC staff use all the areas and programs in the Club to create opportunities for these high-yield learning activities, including leisure reading, writing activities, discussions with knowledgeable adults, helping others, homework help, tutoring and games that develop their cognitive skills.

Arts

The Martha’s Vineyard Boys & Girls Club is committed to providing programs, experiences, and initiatives that allow all island youth to express themselves and build connections with others in the community. MVBGC art programs provide members with opportunities for creative exploration across a diverse range of categories. Our art instructor provides a wide-range of art projects that can reach different age groups and abilities. Whether it be through visual or digital arts, performance, illustration, and so much more.

The art room has diverse program offerings everyday from 4:00 – 5:30pm that are offered for all ages.

Culinary

We offer culinary classes with our Food Security Director, Jenny. Through culinary, members learn about health & wellness, proper nutrition, and the many different foods our world has to offer. They also have the opportunity to learn about food rescue and the value of fighting food waste.

Culinary class is offered every week on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s, from 4:00 – 4:45pm.

Triple Play

A Game Plan for the Mind, Body & Soul- Triple Play has made more than 14.4 million connections with kids and teens, promoting the importance of physical activity and proper nutrition through the program’s three components: Healthy Habits (mind), Daily Challenges (body) & Social Recreation (soul). Triple Play delivers on the belief that whole-child health fosters young people’s ability to gain diverse knowledge, skills, and protective factors that enable them to overcome barriers and thrive in adulthood. Youth who participate in Triple Play report double-digit increases in physical activity, improved eating habits and improved relationships with their peers, which have all been linked to positive long-term health outcomes. Research shows that Social Determinants of Health, or environmental factors (where you live, work, learn, play), have a profound impact on overall development and future health. Adolescents are particularly sensitive to negative social and environmental conditions. As a result, it’s even more critical that youth develop the necessary skills to protect against these negative factors and create positive opportunities for themselves and future generations. 

The gymnasium has diverse program offerings everyday from 4:00 – 5:30pm. This consists of both organized and free-play activities for all ages.

NBA Math Hoops

NBA Math Hoops is a comprehensive community program, featuring a basketball board game, mobile app, and curriculum, that allows students to learn fundamental math skills through the game of basketball. All program content is developed in alignment Common Core State Standards and 21st Century Learning Skills, and has been shown to improve students’ foundational math and social-emotional skills.

NBA Math Hoops happens with Coach Mike on Wednesday’s and Friday’s, from 4:15 – 4:45. Sign-ups are on Monday’s.
