Afterschool Boys & Girls Clubs to open in Sheffield, Sheffield Lake

New afterschool Boys & Girls Clubs will open Nov. 2 in Sheffield and Sheffield Lake. 

The new Clubs will be located at Knollwood Elementary School, 4975 Oster Road, Sheffield, and Brookside Intermediate School, 1812 Harris Road, Sheffield Lake, according to Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio. 

At Knollwood, first and second graders will be able to go to the Club after school until 6:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. At Brookside, kids in grades 3-6 can attend during those same hours and days. 

Applications for membership can be picked up and returned to the main office of each building. There is no charge to join. 

BGCNEO President and CEO Jeff Scott said these will be traditional Boys & Girls Clubs, which provide safe, fun places for kids after school. BGCNEO’s new ClubSmart Learning Centers are different in that they provide in-person support during the school day for kids in digital education environments. 

Boys & Girls Clubs provide afterschool opportunities for kids ages 6-18 with a focus on academic success, healthy lifestyles and character development. At the Clubs, youth receive a meal, homework help, athletics opportunities, exposure to the arts and help from adult mentors. 

“We are extremely excited to open these two Clubs and provide kids with the kinds of positive, nurturing activities that will help them grow into caring and responsible adults,” Scott said.
