Main Clubhouse

Main Clubhouse

The Main Clubhouse is open to youth & teens 8-18 years old from any community. The Club offers a wide variety of programs and opportunities to support youth in three main program areas: academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good character & leadership. 



2021-2022 Clubhouse Membership

The James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn will be offering afterschool and enrichment 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 enrichment 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 2021-2022

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.
