The Boys & Girls Club of Central Wyoming (BGCCW) is looking to fill a need for local youth by providing constructive opportunities for them throughout the year. Fremont County School District #25 has had a key role in this iniative as well as ‘R’ Recreation. The three organizations have been working together since 2018 to see if a Riverton branch is possible.

“We are continuing our work for a Boys & Girls Club youth development afterschool and summer program site in Riverton. The opening is targeted for Fall 2020. As community leaders, we believe in the proven impact the Boys & Girls Club has had on youth in Wyoming and across the nation. It is our desire to see a Club not only open but flourish for youth in Riverton,” BGCCW CEO Ashley Bright announced.

A Riverton branch will only be possible with the help and support of the community, ‘R’ Recreation Program Director Mary Axthelm shared. “Boys & Girls Club of Central Wyoming is such a potential gift to our community and such an opportunity for us to invest in and support our future workforce and the future leaders and residents of our communities.”

Keep in mind the BGCCW will not be competing with existing programs but filling gaps and enhancing the community. They will also provide academic support for students in ther program, FCSD #25 Superintendent Terry Snyder shared. “We really believe there would be a tremendous benefit to our youth through this.”

If you are interested in getting involved, you can call Mary Axthelm at (307) 855-2015 or by contacting the Boys & Girls Club of Central Wyoming here.
