Attention Members: Although we do not know the exact time horizon, currently the Weinstein JCC will remain CLOSED until we are directed by the medical and health authorities that it is safe to reopen. We are navigating together the emotional and economic impact social distancing will have on our lives and community; however, it is our collective responsibility to comply with mandates and guidelines to stop the virus from spreading.

Middle School Program

Kids' Place Middle school program is designed for kids in grades 5 - 8. Our program focuses on leadership development and enables this age group to participate in a wide range of activities designed to strengthen their social skills as well as their independence and confidence.  They will have a chance to volunteer within the community in addition to contributing to different programs happening at the Weinstein JCC. This includes but is not limited to volunteering, assisting with special programming, working in the fitness center and assisting with preschool/childcare classes.  

This year, our kids have already participated in a host of fun and enriching activities and programs:

  • Participated in enrichment activities, including drama, tennis and golf
  • Volunteered at the Virginia Home and the Ronald McDonald House
  • Learned about fitness and nutrition, including healthy habits and how to make healthy choices
  • Participated in some hands-on cooking classes with their counselors
  • Incorporated Chrome Books into their homework routines
  • Visited Maymont

Activities will change throughout the school year, and we've got plenty more activities, programs and services in the works for the next several months!
