Our School Year programs are open at a limited capacity during the 2020-21 school year. As school district’s adjusted their schedules, each of our Club’s modified our program hours to the meet the needs of the community. As of April 19th, our Clubs are back to After-School Program hours for grades K-5 at each of our sites, while still providing a Distance Learning Support Program for Middle and High-School Teens during daytime hours at the Grants Pass Club. As always, safety remains our number one priority and we are doing everything possible to keep children, our staff, and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus.
Following the Oregon Health Authority’s Guidelines on Youth Programs, the Club has attendance limitations and enhanced safety measures for the school year programs.

FREE TO-GO MEALS
The Grants Pass Boys & Girls Club served to-go USDA* meals from March – June 2021. Averaging just over 500 meals a day, the Club served youth and made deliveries to multiple housing units, emergency childcare facilities and families in need. We’re incredibly grateful to have been able to serve our community in this way. Chef Joanne and team put all their love into creating these meals every day during our Club programs.
Please visit our Events Page for updated information. Thank you for your patience as we work to reschedule and redesign these events to meet all COVID-19 regulations.
ONLINE ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES
Our Program Directors have been busy compiling all sorts of enrichment activities, links to free educational sites, fun worksheets and “get-moving” ideas on our website and Facebook– from games you can play to stories being read to staying active and so much more! They’ve also created videos to “interact” with all of the Club Members we miss so dearly. Check out the videos on our YouTube Channel.
Oregon Health Plan (OHP) and Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) are covering a full range of behavioral health screenings, assessments and services via telehealth (synchronous audio and video) and telephone (for those that don’t have access to video/web technology). Youth and families can continue to get support from Options, LaClinica/RCH School Based providers, Family Solutions, OnTrack, etc. via virtual treatment. Members can contact their preferred treatment agency by phone and set up a virtual visit.
If a youth or family member is experiencing a mental health crisis, they can call 541-474-5360 in Josephine County or 541-774-8201 in Jackson County 24 hours 7 days a week. A trained professional will talk to them and help to figure out what resources might be best.
