MARLBOROUGH – Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest announced today, January 19, its Marlborough Clubhouse has revamped its teen center with new STEM equipment to help teens reach their full potential.
The estimated $20,000 renovation was funded by Boston Scientific through the Fit for a Cause challenge, a six-week fitness program with the Boston
Celtics aimed at motivating employees to increase their physical activity, while earning the opportunity to improve the community with a “pay it forward” prize.
The team representing the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest won the renovation for the teen center at the Marlborough clubhouse. The outdated center was refurbished with wall graphics, comfortable furniture, and technology.
Teens are now able to interact, collaborate, and relax in this new space with a donated Xbox, Ozobot STEM skits, tablets, and digital cameras.
“The uninviting room has transformed into a place for teens to learn, grow, and play thanks to Boston Scientific and the Boston Celtics,” said Steve Zepf , Director of Operations at the Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest. “This investment proves that not only do our kids matter, but what they are able to do at the Club will help them in their future and will help our community in the future.”
Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest serves over 6,200 children and youth each year, which makes it one of the largest Boys & Girls Club organizations in Massachusetts. The membership fee is only $25 per year. 2021 marks the 77th year of providing quality out-of-school programming for the children and youth of greater Marlborough, Hudson and Framingham.
