Lunch and Learn
Ivy Tech Corporate College is proud to host a monthly lunch and learn activity. The targeted series will address issues that affect employers today. Sessions are held the fourth Tuesday of the month. Lunch is provided.
Boys & Girls Clubs in Monroe County
The goal of this presentation is to better inform and share opportunities available to families, students, faculty, and community members about the benefits and impact in afterschool programming specifically at the Boys & Girls Clubs in Monroe County. On average, youth spend approximately 1,400 hours at school each year and there are close to 1,200 hours in out-of-school time activities including afterschool programs, extra curricular activities, sports, etc. This time is just as invaluable as the formal education they received from 8:00-4:00 each day. In order to help shape and develop young people, structure and standards should be put in place to ensure positive youth development.
Come and learn about opportunities at the three Boys & Girls Club Units for everyone including:
-Youth ages 6-18
-Professional development opportunities including internships, AmeriCorps service, and part-time employment
It takes a village to raise a child, and we've got a village of youth to help with! Learn how you can help change lives!
