On Friday June 14th, VBGCQ’s young artists showed off their creations in the first Art Gallery Show. Paintings, drawings, and pastel art were features on the walls of the black box studio while African inspired drums and other sculptures were displayed on tables.

Families and friends sipped on juice and ate hors d’ouervres prepared by the Cooking Club while watching live spoken word art by local artists, drawing demonstrations by Art Club members, and viewing the artwork on display.

During the 2018-2019 school year, VBGCQ focused its afterschool arts program on multicultural visual arts inspired by artists and artistic genres from around the world

During the 2018-2019 school year VBGCQ partnered with multiple organizations to run STEM programming for over 500 youth across four after school sites!

Samsung’s DIY STEM program is running at the VBGCQ - Main Club location for the budding scientists and engineers in the middle school program.

BioBus is teaching the Tool Time program at all four locations educating youth about different scientific tools and taking “field trips” to the neighborhoods around each location to perform experiments!

Hofstra University’s Wise Guys and Gals program offers design thinking and engineering challenges to the middle schoolers at the VBGCQ - Main Club including building a functioning prosthesis and creating a website.

Thank you to our partners and our amazing STEM Specialists for helping our kids develop their science skills and learn to love STEM!

 
Halloween Haunted House
 

Halloween at the Club was full of sweets and spooky adventure! With the artistic flair of volunteers from Ophelia Theatre Group, we created an unforgettable haunted house as part of our Halloween celebration. Take a look at our collection of photos to see creative costumes and all of our Halloween fun!

We were thrilled to welcome Marshalls employees at the Club to spend an afternoon with our participants in the After School program! Volunteers kicked off their visit by helping our elementary students complete their homework in Power Hour, before heading to the gym for some fun and games.

Along with help of Coach CP, students taught volunteers Crazy Ball, a Club favorite, and everyone joined in to play - the game was filled with lots of cheering and even a few home-runs! At the end of the day, Marshalls presented the Club with a surprise grant for our Power Hour program. Many thanks to all the volunteers for generously donating their time and making it a very special Wednesday at the Club!
