BGCWC Expands to Belpre

MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) - A longtime youth community group is expanding to more of Washington County.

The Boys and Girls Club of Washington County announced it will be creating a satellite program in Belpre.

The youth center is working on a lease with Belpre Church of the Nazarene.

The program will serve around 30 students from kindergarten to sixth grade after school and the club is talking with Belpre city schools to help with transportation.

"Some of the board members were concerned that Belpre was an underserved area," executive director Rebecca Johnson said, "and when I consulted with Belpre city schools, they confirmed that it is actually an underserved area as far as having options for kids after school. So we wanted to expand into Belpre."

Johnson says she hopes to have everything ready for the site by the time school returns August 14.
