Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware Statement on COVID-19 virus
Dear Boys & Girls Club Families and Community:
In keeping with our promise, we have been taking every reasonable precaution to maintain our high standards of safety for the children, teens, staff, and others who use or visit our facilities. As an additional precautionary step during current concerns about the coronavirus, we have decided to close Club facilities for two weeks, beginning Monday, March 23. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us via email at [email protected].
Safety is the number one priority of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware, and we are doing everything possible to keep children, our staff, and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus. We continue to monitor all updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of Delaware’s health department for updated information. We are advising all our staff, families, and youth members to take precautions recommended by the CDC, as well as providing additional resources like handwashing guides, and information about how to talk to young people about the spread of COVID-19.
We will continue to monitor the issue and will provide additional guidance to our community stakeholders as we learn more. As always, we place the safety of our youth and staff at the highest level.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware is part of a nationwide movement whose mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
In 2016 the organization embarked on a socioeconomic impact study with an independent research group. Results show:
