STEM Programming & Academic Success Update

Welcome to April, that time of year when winter is losing its grip and summer is on the horizon!

Whatever the season, we are always learning here at the Boys & Girls Club, and we have some cool family Academic Success activities planned for our youth and families:

  • Friday, April 20, 6pm to 8pm – Join us for Family STEM Night! Dinner’s on us, along with activities provided by UW Oshkosh, Aurora and the Club.
  • Tuesday, April 24, 6pm to 7pm – Join us for our young readers’ performance of Dr. Seuss stories in our theater! These young students have been working with the Winnebago Literacy Council for several weeks and are excited to bring their reading skills to a new audience!

We are very grateful for community partners like Aurora, UW Oshkosh, and the Winnebago Literacy Council. Without the assistance and generosity of these partners and many others like them, events such as these could not take place.

Another group that must be thanked is our dedicated Learning Center tutoring staff – Miss Mercedes, Miss Megan, and Miss Nacacia. They spend countless hours making learning fun and working wiht kids on their homework.

Speaking of tutoring staff… we are hiring tutors for both the summer and for the upcoming school year (2018-2019). We are in serious need of STEM tutors for both the Learning Center on the Radford side, and the Teen Center.  We are looking for people who are comfortable with helping out in the areas of science, technology, engineering, or math.  Please note that you don’t need to be an expert in any of these fields and you don’t need to have huge knowledge of all of them, either! All you need is to feel comfortable helping students figure out math and science homework concepts and answers. It’s a major plus if you like planning activities in these areas, as well!  If you or someone you know is interested in this sort of employment, please contact Sara Eliasen, Director of Academic Success at, or call (920) 233-1414, extension 20.
