Muncie Central High School’s Athletic Department has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Muncie to facilitate study tables for student athletes.
It is part of the mission of the Boys & Girls Club to serve more teens, more often. This mutually beneficial initiative is focused on academic success and mentoring. The staff of the Boys & Girls Club will monitor study tables three times a week. This is a valuable connection with an organization that is already familiar with many of the student athletes. This partnership will provide our students with an opportunity to stay connected with young adults and will help them feel comfortable when asking for assistance and discussing life issues. This partnership provides the coaches extra time to prepare and facilitate team practices.
Micah Maxwell, Director of the Boys & Girls Club states: “The staff of the Boys & Girls Club values the opportunity to engage regularly with outstanding student athletes as they work to prioritize and improve their academics. Part of our youth-development strategy is to provide ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals; life- enhancing programs and character development experiences; and hope and opportunity”.
