The Bernie Wohl Center is home to Goddard Riverside’s after schoolprogram, summer day camp, and other community programs. It was named in honor of Bernie Wohl who served as Executive Director of Goddard Riverside from 1972 until his retirement in 1998.

In 2007 Goddard Riverside launched The Bernie Wohl Campaign for Kids, a commitment from the Board of Directors and staff to ensure vibrant programming for the benefit of children, youth and families in the years to come.

The centerpiece of the renovation is the transformation of the auditorium at the Bernie Wohl Center into a theatre that will serve as a multi-purpose space for our youth programs as well as a neighborhood venue for performances and community events.
