Green Bay, WI -- The Green Bay YMCA started its after school pilot program on Tuesday at Eisenhower Elementary. It's an academic and enrichment program for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Organizers hope the after school education will help kids do better in their regular classes. They offer a wide array of activities.
"Arts and science projects, we do gym games, and everything we do connects with the school. We have a very good partnership with the school and the district, and we serve the at risk kids here," said Mandy Caldie, YMCA After-School Program Coordinator.
The new program also offers tutoring, college and career exploration, leadership development and arts education.
