Club J After School Program
Our theme for the 2015-2016 schoolyear will be “Tikkun Olam,” which means repairing the world. Club J, with the help of the entire Mandel JCC family, will focus on a different project each month that helps support our community. Most projects will be participantdriven and will also include can drives, letter writing campaigns, and more!
Club J (Kindergarten - 5th Grade)
Your child will have a seamless transition from Meyer Academy to the Mandel JCC, Palm Beach Gardens escorted by our after school counselors. We give kids careful and specialized attention as we promote their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Kids love it because we let them run off steam in the gym and fields, get creative with art projects, play games, participate in community service, and serve snacks! In addition to a wide variety of activities, the After-school Program celebrates Shabbat and the holidays on the Jewish calendar. Our staff looks forward to sharing these holidays with your children as part of our program. These enriching activities are part of a thoughtful curriculum that’s aligned directly with Meyer Academy, designed to engage your child while keeping the love of learning alive!
Enrichment Classes: All Mandel JCC members registered for 5 days of the Afterschool Program receive 10% off all enrichment classes. If you are a member of the JCC you will receive an additional 10% off! Our staff will drop off and pick up your child at each of their classes.
Club 6-7-8 (6th – 8th grade)
A teen membership is available exclusively for Meyer students in 6th-8th grade. With this membership, teens are able to hang out at the Mandel JCC after school and enjoy all that the JCC has to offer. They can take a fitness class, use the pool, lounge in Teen Tech Town, or relax and catch up on homework in the Great Hall. To sign up for membership, contact Melissa Engelberg at 561-712-5226.
Counselor In Training (CIT)
For those 8th graders who are looking to get community service hours before high school, we have something brand new for you. Be a CIT (Counselor in Training) for the K-5th grade Club J members and get a taste of what it feels like to be a counselor. Up to 3 CIT’s are welcome each week and to participate in the CIT program, you must be a member of the Mandel JCC. For more information and to register, please contact Ilyse Bell at 561-712-5237.
The Mandel JCC offers something for everyone with a wide variety of enrichment classes such as dance, gymnastics, sports and so much more. Monday - Friday Club J participants receive a 10% discount on enrichment classes. If you don’t attend Club J, you can sign up for Class Plus and we will pick up your child from Meyer, walk them over, give them a snack and make sure they make it to their class safe and sound.

The Mandel JCC prides itself on providing a safe and nurturing environment where professional and experienced staff respect and value the diversity of each child. Every staff member completes a background check, is certified in first aid and CPR, and attends regular in-service trainings.
When local school is closed we have Camp Days and Vacation Camps. When your child’s school is closed due to early dismissals, professional development, or winter and spring breaks the Mandel JCC’s doors are open for you.
