Welcome and Thank You for Visiting Our Website!
Please note during the current pandemic, the Club has altered our typical After School Program:
The Boys & Girls Club of Alton in partnership with the Alton Community Unit School District #11 (ACUSD) adjusted its normal After School Program at the beginning of the 2020-21 Academic Year to a Remote Learning Center and Enrichment Program. This change was made to assist area youth and families during the Covid-19 Pandemic and provide an educational setting to compliment ACUSD Remote/Online Classrooms. During the Remote Learning Center portion of the day, which coincides with ACUSD classroom scheduling, the Club functions as an off-site school environment and provides a classroom learning environment for a maximum of 60 member students varying in age from 6 to 18 years in grades 1 thru 12. This program began at the Club on 8/31/2020 and will continue as needed and agreed to with ACUSD. NOTE – the Club is currently at its maximum 60 members. For additional information or to get on our waiting list call 618-462-6259.
