Groundbreaking: Boys & Girls Club Addition at McGovern Middle School

George McGovern Middle School Get Directions


Join us for the groundbreaking of the Boys & Girls Club at McGovern Middle School!

With the ability to serve hundreds of students each day, the Boys & Girls Club will provide new services and opportunities for George McGovern students and their families after-school, on non-school days and weekdays during the summer months.

The new Boys & Girls Club will be an over 16,000 square foot facility dedicated to providing youth a productive and engaging space to call their own – during a time in their life when they need it most. This facility will include, but is not limited to:
• Innovation labs where youth can experience and grow their interest in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math through the use of technology.
• A multi-purpose gymnasium provides youth a designated area for healthy lifestyles, competitive sports, and recreational games.
• A dedicated culinary space for youth to learn and expand their culinary skills with the help of local partners in an industrial kitchen setting.
• A studio allows youth to express their artistic creativity through lyricism, podcasting, and musical exploration.
• Social spaces designed to promote connectivity between youth and their peers with activities and mealtimes.

The groundbreaking will take place on the south end of the middle school.
