Main Club Site

Since 2004 the old Carbondale High School Gym and lower level have been the home of the Boys & Girls Club of Carbondale.  The lower level houses nine activity rooms, some of which serve as home base for different age groups. Outside play space behind and on the side of the building offer ample room for sports, recreation programs and events.

Rebound Alternative High School

In 2016 Rebound became a formally chartered unit of the BGCC.  This is one of three programs operated by BGCC in the Carbondale Public Schools that is funded by the federal 21st Century Learning Center grants. Education, Leadership, Counseling, and Recreation Programs are the focus. In addition, teens at Rebound may opt to attend other afterschool programs at the Main Club site.
