Thanks to the leadership of the Jack & Shirley McIntire Foundation, with additional support from Marathon Petroleum Corporation, Barto Family Foundation, Skagit Community Foundation, Jim & Mary Jermyn, Howard Behar, Jim Eberhardt & Kaylene Farly, and Lynne Jordan, activities on iClubhouse are provided to kids and teens, free of charge.
While the genesis of iClubhouse is in conversations before the COVID pandemic accelerated, that discussion made it clear that the value of such a platform can be significant, even when conditions return closer to those existing pre-COVID, value is still identified.
With your support, iClubhouse can continue beyond the initial push through August 31, 2020. We see the potential for after-hours “Power Hour” sessions, where Club members can engage with staff for additional homework help should a problem arise after going home for the day. For teens, it can serve as a more regular connection and check-in point at their convenience, instead of relying on squeezing a visit into the regular Clubhouse. When weather conditions change suddenly and extended school closures are required, the system now has the capacity to scale quickly to continue providing supports when school is Closed. When School is closed, but there are not enough members seeking services to make it efficient to open Clubs, historically during Winter and Spring Breaks, Club members can engage in iClubhouse activities.
Your investment now, provides a #GreatFuture for kids and teens in Skagit County, #WhateverItTakes!
