Our School-Year Program

Club House is beyond excited to be in partnership with North Thurston Public Schools this school-year as we offer an in-person program through June 2024. Club House participants benefit from a program that provides youth with homework help, interactive enrichment activities, physical movement, and a safe place to gather with peers. Club House also coordinators with families to provide program materials, school supplies, books, and resources- to include emergency assistance.

This school-year, we're thrilled to welcome back and incorporate community partners into our program offerings. Community partners this year include: Puget Sound Estuarium, Youth Service of America, Haki Farmers Collective, SafePlace, Bridge Music Project, and many more!

This school-year, Chinook and Nisqually Middle School Club House sites will operate at their respective school-buildings, Monday through Friday, 6:45am to 9:15am. Pleasant Glade Elementary School operates Monday through Friday, 2:30pm to 5:00pm (1:30pm to 5:00pm during early release). Lydia Hawk Elementary School operates Monday through Thursday, 3:00pm to 6:00pm. Please see individual site tabs to find the most up-to-date schedule. If you are interested in having your student join us, fill out the application below and contact the respective Site Coordinator for more information.
