Boys & Girls Club opens unit to service White Lake area youth
space
With funding from Langlade County, the Boys & Girls Club has opened an extension site at White Lake School, allowing rural youth to have an opportunity to engage in educational programs and services.

“We’re excited,” Program Director Dave Corcoran said. “We’re hoping it takes off and people give it a chance and see what we’re like and what the Boys & Girls Club can provide for our community’s youth.”

Participants in the White Lake after school program will receive a snack and get homework help during Power Hour. They will also be participating in various enrichment programs focusing on education and career development, sports, fitness and recreation, health and life skills, character and leadership; and the arts.

Langlade County provided the Boys & Girls Club with $10,000 for 2014. Of that, $3,780 will go toward the White Lake extension site.

Memberships are free until Feb. 13. After that date they may be obtained for $20 a year.

The program kicked off Monday and will continue each Monday and Thursday from 3:15 to 5:15 p.m. in the school cafeteria.  

The Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County serves 500 registered members.

“Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens,” Corcoran said. “We provide outcome driven programs focusing on academic success, healthy lifestyles and good character & citizenship.”
