ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The Boys and Girls Club of Central Virginia is preparing to open a new building in Albemarle County in 2023.

Located next to Journey Middle School, this facility will be able to assist hundreds of children from ages five to 18.

"This new club opening means that 300 kids every day and 500 kids every year get access to after-school and summer youth development programs," the Director of Foundation and Corporate Giving and Public Relations for the Boys and Girls Club of Central Virginia, James Compton, said.

Some even wrote encouragement on the beams.

"I'm super excited the kids are super, super, super excited we can't wait for this to be ready for us to move in," the Future Director of the Albemarle Campus Club, Nick Feggans, said.

It will have some exciting features.

"We're standing in front of the entrance of our four squash courts of the future Albemarle Campus Club. We're really excited that even though this is the only facility of the Boys and Girls Clubs that will have a squash court, it will be a place where members from all of our clubs can come participate in the squash program," Compton said.

Although there have been some delays, the project is still on schedule for 2023.

"Like every other construction project in the world right now, we've definitely had our own share of supply chain challenges, but really thankful and have a great team working on this project and we're on track as of today to open in early 2023 for all the members," Compton said.

"It seems like every day we ride by, it's like a different wall up and it's it's just amazing just to see it go from a little rock to a big building," Feggans said.

The three-story facility will help change the community.

"As a parent, I just know what it means to have somewhere for your kids to go after school. I think that's huge to be able to provide that academic support, good character, and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles," Feggans said.
