COVID-19 is having a major impact on the world around us but Boys & Girls Clubs of Hernando County is determined to do whatever it takes to ensure youth and families have what they need through these uncertain times through our Cyber Clubhouse and Virtual Programming.
Each weekday our Cyber Clubhouse features daily videos that focus on academic success, health & wellness, arts & crafts, and a preschool-age section for kids to watch at their own pace and with their families.
Virtual field trips, joke of the day, and even how to learn to play an instrument are spotlighted weekly.
For youth who attend Westside, Eastside, Brooksville and Moton Elementary Schools.
