Muncie, IN—The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie are excited to announce a new program, in partnership with the YMCA of Muncie, to help support our families, our schools, and most importantly our kids during a difficult academic year. Starting Monday, October 26th, the Clubs will be opening a school day program for Muncie Community School students who are currently enrolled in the Virtual Learning Program.
Students in grades K-12 can participate in a hybrid of virtual school programming as well as face-to-face help from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday – Friday. This program is free of charge to members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie. (Membership to the Clubs is only $15 per year and new members are added daily.) As part of the program, students will receive schoolwork assistance, internet access, and a secure place to do their work. In addition to the assistance with the Virtual Learning Program, students will receive breakfast, lunch, and a snack each day they are in attendance. This expansion is made possible through funding from the United Way of Delaware, Henry, and Randolph Counties and through funding provided from a Lily Endowment through the Indiana United Way.
Classrooms will be limited to 10 – 15 members each. Spaces are limited, please call Destinee Lewis, Director of Programs, at 765-282-4461, ext. 104 to reserve your student’s place.
