Bob Burdette Center


The Bob Burdette Center provides free after-school and summer programming for children in kindergarten through 12th grade at three locations.  Emmanuel Baptist Church is host to the BBC’s largest program which serves 65 children in kindergarten through 12th grade. The Emmanuel site enrolls 40 students from Mary C. Snow West Side Elementary and operates on the year-round school calendar for these students.  An additional 25 Stonewall Jackson Middle School and Capital High School students are enrolled at this site and programming is provided to them following the traditional school calendar. The second program location, which opened in August 2015, is at North Charleston Baptist Church and serves 25 children in kindergarten through 5th grade from Grandview Elementary.  The BBC’s third program location, relocated to Edgewood Elementary in August 2016, serves 40 children in kindergarten through 5th grade from that school. 


The mission of the BBC is to provide West Side children and families with opportunities for holistic development for healthy futures.  To accomplish this mission, the BBC provides participants with homework assistance, tutoring, enrichment programming, recreational programming, and hot meals.  Participants also have the opportunity to participate in programming offered through our partners which include Arts in Action, Child Evangelism Fellowship, and West Virginia State University Extension Services.
