2021-2022 Clubhouse Membership
The James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn is offering afterschool and teen evening programming during the 2021-2022 school year. Membership is open to youth & teens 8-18 years old and requires an updated membership form and $25 membership fee.
Membership forms & link to pay membership fees will be emailed after confirmation of registration for an afterschool session or program. Membership forms & fees are collected once per school year.
The Club will continue to implement COVID safety procedures including limited capacities, indoor masking, and contact tracing, aided through program registration. These protocols will help to ensure the Club remains a safe place for our youth & teens during the ongoing health crisis.
Afterschool will be open Mondays – Fridays from Woburn Public Schools dismissal until 6:00 p.m. for youth & teens ages 8-18. Afterschool will have limited capacity and members must sign up by the day of the week. This limited capacity and set daily roster will help ensure the Club remains a safe place for our members amongst the ongoing health crisis. Masks are required for all who enter the Club.
Each afternoon members will participate in Power Hour, the Club’s designated time for homework help & academic support, receive a snack, and participate in a two activities of their choice. Members are encouraged to attend all registered days in their session and repeated failure to attend will affect your child’s continued ability to attend the program and to sign up for future sessions.

2021 Teen Evenings Flyer! We encourage teen members to attend on evenings they are interested in participating in the planned activities. Participation is required in a program at all times while at the Clubhouse. Check out the teen program calendar here!
Space is limited in these opportunities. Programs are designed based on weekly attendance and we ask participants to attend all scheduled meetings. Drop-in participation is subject to change due to teen membership numbers and attendance.
The Club is seeking enthusiastic and energetic elementary members for Gemstones, our service learning group. Gemstones is a group of committed elementary members who have an interest in giving back to their Club and their community. This structured group meets weekly to learn more about community issues, plan solutions and implement projects. Gemstones is run by teen Keystone leaders who act as mentors to our youngest members.
Gemstones is open to all elementary members, ages 8 and older. Those interested should join us for our introductory meeting on Wednesday, October 27th from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Members will learn more about the group & expectations, meet the advisors and learn how to become a member.
