Get Ready for a New Club for Area Kids

By Rhonda Spangler. CREATED Aug 7, 2014

GREEN BAY, Wis. - A new destination for our kids right in our own backyard.

Renovations are complete at the Boys & Girls Club in Green Bay. The Lutsey Unit located on University Avenue has more space which includes a video arts studio new dance room and a "teen wing."   The additions will help the Boys and Girls Club add new activities for teens in the area. 

 "Attendance was going down, and the ultimate question was why? And the sentiment among our teens was, 'Well the club is really for little kids', so we said 'ok,  well if we give you a dedicated space, will that do it?' And as it turns out, if you build it, they will come," says Sylvania Dubeau, the Director of Development of the Boys and Girls Club.
 
The Boys and Girls Club of  Green Bay serves an average of 750 children a day through 8 locations in the city.
