Dear Parents & Guardians –

I’m writing to let you know that the last day of Boys & Girls Club programming at the Thomasville Recreation Center will be Friday, July 19.

We’ve enjoyed getting to know your families and this community. Thank you for trusting us to help shape the lives of your kids and teens over the years.

As you make this transition, we have put together a list of several afterschool options for your families to consider.

For children who attend Thomasville Heights Elementary, there are spots available at the school’s aftercare program run by Purpose Built. The program begins directly after school and runs until 6pm. To sign up for this program, visit the front desk at Thomasville Heights Elementary and they can provide you with more information.

For members who do not attend Thomasville Heights Elementary, we have open spots at two of our Boys & Girls Club locations – Joseph B. Whitehead Boys & Girls Club (1900 Lakewood Ave. Atlanta, Georgia 30315) and Warren Boys & Girls Club (790 Berne Street Atlanta, Georgia 30316). Both locations are between 2-3 miles of the current site.

If you are interested in enrolling at these locations, visit to check out membership options for you and your families.

Stay tuned regarding our transportation options from school to Club. We are currently mapping this out and will share with you soon.

We are proud of the staff that has served here at Thomasville Boys & Girls Club. We are working to make their transition as smooth as possible. We’ve identified areas of needs at several of our Boys & Girls Club locations, as well as partner organizations, and hope to find them a new home.

If you have any additional questions about this transition, please feel free to reach out to me at 404-337-3460 or

We appreciate you entrusting us with your kids and have enjoyed getting to know you and your families. We wish you the best and hope you have a great summer!
