Our Liberty Elementary Program opened in September of 2013, and we have watched it grow into an awesome program over the past few years! Under the supervision of Unit Director Melissa Antizzo; this program covers the majority of our curriculum on a daily basis. Our Club Kids are regularly participating in Mathematics Relays, Fitness Challenges, and Art Projects!
Our Club Kids also volunteer to help at community service projects in any way possible (they are usually responsible for creating the decorations)! Over the years, we have seen a variety of visitors stop in to speak to our Club Kids as well, including American Idol Contestant Bucky Covington!
Most Club locations start with snack and Power Hour, an hour for the Club kids to focus on homework, studying for upcoming tests, and playing games or completing activities designed to reinforce the lessons they learn during the school day.
All Club locations also focus on the five core areas of Youth Development, according to Boys & Girls Clubs of America: Character & Leadership, Health & Wellness, The Arts, Sports & Recreation, and Education & Career Development. All Club locations also complete a monthly community service project and have a monthly guest speaker to keep things interesting!
Safety for our Club kids is the highest priority for our organization.
All staff members undergo annual criminal background checks and all Program Staff also undergo annual fingerprint clearance from New York State, are CPR and First Aid-certified, and receive a minimum of 15 hours of youth development training annually.
