Holmen Boys and Girls Club offering ‘Academic Resource Program’ for students learning virtually
It's a safe place for kids to do their virtual learning if an adult can't be with them at home
HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) – One local organization is providing a safe place for kids to do their virtual learning if an adult can’t be with them at home.
The newly opened Holmen Boys and Girls Club is starting up its Academic Resource Program.
It’s a space for students to do their virtual classes, with BGC staff helping them stay on track.
Time is also set aside so kids can spend time in the gym, playground, and participate in other activities.
Plus, meals are provided.
The organization is offering this program to make sure kids can succeed this fall.
“I think schools really realized in the spring that a lot of kids may have lost track because they didn’t have the services available to them. So it’s really identifying those kids who struggled in the spring, and giving them more support,” said club director, Brett Gullicksrud.
There is currently a waitlist to get into the program, but once it’s fully staffed, the club hopes to offer this opportunity to 100 kids.
