1. Healthy Habits (Mind)

2. Daily Challenges (Body)
Intentional focus on physical literacy: Ability – Increasing capability in basic movement skills and overall fitness; Confidence -the knowledge of the ability to play sports or enjoy other physical activities and Motivation- the intrinsic enthusiasm for physical activity for members to be physically active for life.
3. Social Recreation (Soul)
Emphasis on social and emotional development, or the social, cognitive, and behavioral skills that youth need to be healthy and productive. There is an explicit focus on emotional regulation, healthy relationships (with self and others), and responsible decision-making.

The Makerspace powered by Infosys Foundation USA participated in a contest with BGCA, combining art with STEM - the Fine Arts/Makerspace interdisciplinary project.
our members created their own tiles. Together they created a laser etched community arts project over the course of several weeks.
Working with members of the Asylum Hill Club, all ages, from the Early Learning Center up to staff members. Each participant designed their own translucent tile using either a computer design program or markers and paper to represent themselves in a positive light.
We hope you enjoy these creations as much as we do! We love the creativity and talent of our members and are happy to be able to share it with the community. ... See MoreSee Less
