In collaboration with The Boys and Girls Club of Providence, n|e|m|d is developing plans to renovate and expand their Wanskuck Clubhouse to meet the evolving needs of the community. 

The existing Boys and Girls Club of Providence’s Branch Avenue location provides before and after school programs, as well as educational and emotional support services, to approximately 100 students from seven local neighborhood schools. Their mission is to enable and inspire youth, especially those from diverse or difficult circumstances, to reach their full potential, becoming healthy, productive, and responsible members of society.

The modernized club will foster and support new generations of our youth, setting them on a firm footing for their future. By providing each student with a road map to become their best selves, The Club hopes to instill in Club Members a desire to pay it forward to their families, their communities, and others they meet along the way.

Wanskuck Clubhouse wants to be the start of a cycle of paying it forward!

The revitalized Club will offer flexible spaces and amenities to:

  • Provide career training for the medical fields, wood working/carpentry, plumbing, electrical and mechanical trades.
  • Provide an extensive Computer Lab for teaching the basics of a vast array of career interests in a fun and engaging age-appropriate curriculum.   
  • Provide a safe social setting for educational physical activities such as “Exergames”, a hybrid between instructional workout DVDs and immersive game environments.

Our firm is proud to be a part of the fundraising team as well as the architects for this project. Our President, Mehdi Khosrovani, who serves as Vice President of Philanthropy, has been involved with this organization for several years. The Boys and Girls Club is especially close to our hearts because at n|e|m|d we believe in a future driven by empowered young people and understand the value of helping underrepresented individuals receive opportunities that set them up for success, thereby building a better world for all.
