Club House Program

VIRTUAL CLUB HOUSE--Our Response to COVID-19 

With the closure of schools for the rest of the 2019-20 school year, Club House has shifted our programming to Virtual Club House! Students are engaged in both live online meetings and provided with video and other web resources to engage in academic support activities and social emotional support during this difficult time. Club House continues to offer homework help as well, providing breakout "rooms" for students with homework questions. Additionally, Club House has coordinated with families to provide printed packets, school and activity supplies and books needed to stay academically engaged during the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order.

All four Club House sites are providing a variety of programming at different times throughout the week and the day. Please see the schedule below and if you are interested in having your student join us, contact the Site Coordinator or Program Director.

TOGETHER! places our before- and after- school programs in communities and schools that need them most. Supplemental learning opportunities are especially vital in communities burdened by poverty, homelessness, hunger, educational disparities and a lack of access to extracurricular activities. We invest in schools with the highest percentage of struggling families to create educational equity. 

Our before- and after- school programs are at the cutting edge education and youth development. We create programs that children want to attend — where hands-on, fun creative learning is the norm.  And our after school programs engage a broad range of community-based organizations and volunteers from places like the Food Bank, local colleges and universities, Timberland Regional Library, faith based groups and others. These organizations leverage the best our communities have to offer to help ensure every student succeeds in school and in life.

Children in first through fifth grades attend after school while student in sixth through eighth grades attend before school. The Club House program runs September through June as well as over the summer at no cost to kids and families. TOGETHER!’s Club House programs work in partnership with North Thurston Public Schools to improve academic and social skills. Our model includes continuous improvement through active participation in the national Youth Program Quality (YPQ) Initiative. Our Club House programs are evaluated annually by an outside evaluator and our staff members participate in Youth Work Methods training.

TOGETHER! runs 21st Century Learning Centers, also known as “Club Houses,” in two elementary schools and two middle schools:

  • Lydia Hawk Elementary
  • Pleasant Glade Elementary
  • Chinook Middle School
  • Nisqually Middle School 

If students do not attend the schools listed above they may still be eligible to attend program. Eligibility is determined by where student resides, academic need and finacial need. Please contact the program director for more information.
