June 30 Summer Updates!

We would like to take a moment in the midst of all this uncertainty to tell you about some of the ways the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta remains committed to fulfilling our mission to "To enable all young people of the Mississippi Delta, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens."

 

Our organization has made the difficult decision.  We will not be offering an In-Club experience this summer.  In the interest of the safety of our Club Members, their families, and our youth development staff we will continue to offer Daily Wellness Checks and Virtual Learning Experiences throughout the months of June and July.  More information on these interactive opportunities will be posted here and communicated directly to Members & their parents during Wellness Checks.  If you have any questions please reach out to us at info@bgcmsdelta.org
