DONATE

To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to be great today and reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens tomorrow.

Policies and Expectations

Our staff takes the responsibility of the Club's everyday operations seriously, from how the members are treated by staff and each other to our interaction with parents. Scroll down to see more about some of our primary financial policies and membership expectations.

The clubhouse is a community. Each member is responsible for how they behave in this community. There are several things that you can do to become a positive force in our clubhouse. They are:
 
  •  Respect everything and everyone.
  • Physical force and or bullying will not be tolerated. Get help from an adult or walk away.
  •  Please respect everyone else’s belongings. This includes locker space, back packs and much more.
  • The adult leaders in the club are responsible for you. Showing disrespect, being rude, or striking a staff person is not acceptable.
  • Swearing is not an acceptable way for speaking to others and it will not be tolerated.
When you break a rule several things may happen. You will be spoken to, you may be asked to sit out, and or your parents may be called (usually a third offense).
Suspension guidelines are as follows; First suspension is one day off, second suspension three days off, and third suspension is five days off. After the third suspension it is up to the Director of Operations and parent to decide if re-entry into the clubhouse is appropriate. The following actions will result in immediate suspension: disrespect of a staff person, using physical force, vandalism, and endangering someone with inappropriate contact.
These are the basic rules for our club. At times we will adjust, add, or change certain things to make our club a happy one.
  • •A non-refundable membership fee of $35.00 is due annually for each child upon submission of membership application. Membership runs September 1st through August 31st. Replacement membership card fee is $5.
  • All tuition and program fees are payable in advance. Refer to individual program registration forms for details. Non-payment of fees may result in suspension of program participation/childcare privileges.
  • If qualified for financial assistance, responsible party/guardian is responsible for completing all paperwork necessary for assistance and for the balance of fees for the days that child/children attends.
  • Returned Checks or Declined Credit Cards: a $25 fee will be applied to your account if your payment does not clear.
  • Late Pick Up Fee: Any children picked up after stated program end time will be assessed a $5 late fee after the first five-minute grace period. An additional $1 per minute late fee will be charged until member has been picked up. For example, a child picked up at 6:50 from the afterschool program would be assessed a $15 late fee per child ($0 for 1st 5 minutes, $5 for the next 5 minutes and $1 a minute for each additional minute).
  •  All late fees are assessed per child.
  •  Late fees are due when child is picked up.

Our Values

We have a wide variety of programs, but for us, everything comes back to instilling our core values into our members to help them be the best they can be. We try to reflect these values in everything we do:

  • Integrity
  • Leadership
  • Teamwork
  • Community
  • Respect
  • Fun!

We believe they fall right in line with our mission statement: to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to be great today and reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens tomorrow.

Along with the rest of the world, we’ve been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19. It has brought uncertainty and disruption to the communities we serve, but Boys & Girls Clubs of Souhegan Valley’s top priority has not changed: the health and safety of the children we serve.

I wanted to take a moment to keep you informed on how we are doing everything we can to ensure the well-being of our Club members, as well as the staff and volunteers who work at/with the Club.

We remain in close and regular contact with local, regional and state health officials and are monitoring the regular updates from the Federal government, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as the World Health Organization (WHO). Though the situation around the virus remains fluid, our goal is to continue our mission – to serve those kids who need us the most – both during and after the crisis affecting all of us now.

Here are some of the proactive steps we’ve quickly taken to continue to protect the well-being of our members, as well as to continue the important work of the Club:

  1. Established a weekly meeting schedule, made up of Club leadership and Board members, to monitor the situation, stay in close contact with local, regional and national officials and share insights to Club staff, parents and greater Milford community.
  2. Reinforced our Safety Standards with additional emphasis on virus prevention protocols across the organization and to our Club members’ families.
  3. Expanded opportunities for Club staff members to reduce their risk of contracting and spreading infections, and ensure they have the necessary support during these uncertain times.
  4. Defined what resources we can provide to our kids and families, whether the Club itself is open or closed.
  5. Utilized virtual resources developed by our staff to continue connection and engagement with Club members and their families remotely.
  6. Taken extra steps to ensure our Clubhouses are clean, sanitized and that those who enter are symptom-free.

The safety and well-being of our Club members remains our foremost priority, and we will continue to share updates with you as quickly and transparently as possible.
