BGCWC becomes a Partner at Large with MCSD

As of today, March 26, 2018, the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County is now a Partner at Large with the Marietta City School District.

BGCWC provides homework help, study skills, and more for students in all six Marietta Schools. Our educated staff and student/college volunteers help the children with any difficulty's they may have while working on homework, reading, or anything else. Our goal is to help every child that walks through our door succeed.

Thank you to Tasha Werry and William Hampton with the Marietta City School District for accepting our request to become a Partner at Large and we look forward to continuing our work with the Marietta City School students as we have for many years!

 

The mission of the Boys and Girls Club Washington County is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
