Our Before and After School Program 

Club House is beyond excited to offer in-person programming this 2021-22 school year. We are aware of the rising COVID-19 cases in Thurston county and are dedicated to doing everything possible to ensure the safety of the community and to support North Thurston Public School District's safety protocols. In the case of COVID-19 exposure or school closures, Club House will resume virtual program offerings until safe to resume.

Club House participants benefit from a program that provides youth with homework help, interactive enrichment activites, phyiscal movement, and a safe place to gather with peers. Club House also coordinates with families to provide program materials, school supplies, books, and resources- to include emergency assistance.

This school year, we're thrilled to welcome back and incorporate community partners into our program offerings. Community partners include: Puget Sound Estuarium, Haki Farmers Collective, SafePlace, Bridge Music Project, Olympic National Park, and many more!

All four Club House sites are providing programming at different times throughout the week. Please see individual site tabs to find the most up-to-date schedule.

Club House

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

Club House creates programming that youth want to attend - where hands-on, fun creative learning is the norm. Our before and after school programs engage directly with school building staff, North Thurston School District, and a broad range of local organizations and volunteers from places like Puget Sound Estuarium, Safe Place, South Sound Reading Foundation, Haki Farmers Collective, The Bridge Music Project, local colleges and universities, and others.

Club House programs come at no cost to youth or families. Club House operates from September through the end of the school-year in June as well as a four-week summer program. Club House operated 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 the student resides, academic need, and financial need. Please contact the program director for more information.
