Marlborough The Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest BGCMW) has recently launched the “A Boost For Youth” campaign focusing on the unanticipated needs of youth following the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are more than 6,000 youth from Hudson, Marlborough, and Framingham that rely on BGCMW for quality out-of-school programming.

The initiative will focus on reversing learning and language loss by providing one-on-one tutors and group learning opportunities, restoring the feeling of safety for youth who are experiencing anxiety and uncertainty, and providing opportunities for fun and letting kids be kids.

“Our Boost For Youth campaign is special because it supports the immediate needs of the youth we serve. While we have been connecting with our members throughout this closure, our staff is looking forward to seeing members back in our buildings very soon,” said Chris Duane, president & CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest. “Thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign thus far. We know that so many families are counting on us to reopen soon and we appreciate your support.”

BGCMW board members have banded together to match the first $10,000 raised through this campaign. For every dollar you donate today, two dollars will go back to the Club.
