New partnership bridges Albany gym with Boys & Girls Club

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A new partnership has been created between the Boys & Girls Club and the Thornton Gym in East Albany.

With the new pool and renovations to the gym, the organization plans on running a full fledged Boys & Girls program at the new location.

The plan is to have an after - school program from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for all ages and a Teen program that caters only to teenagers from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The decision for the partnership was finalized when the city commission approved it Tuesday.

The Boys & Girls Club said that the new center will help build on the city's strengths and allow them to help Albany youth face their challenges.
