PUNTA GORDA — The chairman of Boys & Girls Clubs of Charlotte County said Thursday students will be “knocking on our door” to participate following a recent partnership with New Operation Cooper Street.

The partnership — made public a couple weeks ago — will allow the Boys & Girls Clubs to operate its nationally recognized programming at New Operation Cooper Street. The move saves the iconic Rec Center money and allows it flexibility to expand resources to middle and high school students, offering a range of services from mentorship programs to career readiness initiatives.
