With the closing of our in-school Club Sites due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Dundee Township (BGCDT) launched its VClub Platform, which allows us to engage our members online and continue to serve our eight program sites and communities. Our staff lead daily program activities involving the six pillars of our curriculum, featuring interactive Zoom live streams to lead them in the program’s topics and projects for the day. Integration of the My.Future online platform, and instructor- led art, STEM and cooking projects have been the highlights, all supported by “Club to Go” project kits distributed weekly. The V500 race will be the Capstone Project for this innovative virtual program.

V500 Race Format:

The BGCDT V500 will use pinewood cars assembled, customized and painted by Club Members at home, and then brought to the pit area at our Race Headquarters the week of May 25th. In the pits, they will be grouped by grades, with multiple heats run on a timed track to
