As we continue to monitor developments and safety regulations relating to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our mission still holds true: To empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, productive, and responsible citizens.


Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Ohio will remain open during the 2020-21 academic year. We are opening our doors to serve youth in need of care during the traditional school day while providing a safe place for youth to pursue their virtual learning.

Safety for all is our top priority. 

Increased safety procedures are in place to decrease the possibility of spreading COVID-19. We operate under the highest safety standards in compliance with CDC, State, and local health guidelines to keep members safe. To decrease the possibility of spreading COVID-19, numerous policies and procedures have been implemented to insure of staff and members.

The following highlights some of those important procedural changes:

  • Daily health screens will be obligatory for all staff and members
  • Proper hand hygiene procedures will take place upon entry, departure & throughout the day
  • Decreasing the capacity of each site
  • Encourage social distancing of 6 ft. between members and staff
  • Members and staff will wear face masks
  • Daily cleaning procedures will ensure high-touch surfaces are frequently disinfected

Thank you for understanding that we will have to start with limited capacity due to COVID-19 safety precautions. We will increase our capacity as soon as it is safe to do so.
