Work soon will be completed on the new Kennewick Clubhouse for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties at 910 W. Seventh Place in Kennewick.
The facility is set to open to area youth in January 2019.
The $4.6 million, 23,000-square-foot building on two acres is made possible largely by private donations from community members, with some additional support from the city of Kennewick, Benton County and the state of Washington.
Recreation, education and mentoring will be provided there by trained staff to give hope and opportunity to youth served at the clubhouse, which will consist of a teen center, preschool, game room, art room, learning center, technology center, kitchen and full-size gymnasium.
It’ll be affordable for kids too. Membership cost is $20 per year for elementary kids, and it’s free for middle school and high school students.
The project was undertaken by KB&G LLC, a private investment group committed to improving the opportunities of more than 1,000 school-age youth living within the six-block neighborhood surrounding the new branch.
The building, which was designed by Coeur d’Alene-based H2A Architects after the Hagadone Clubhouse in Idaho, will be bought by the Boys & Girls Clubs upon completion.
Chervenell Construction Co. of Kennewick is general contractor for the project.
