Today, Governor Scott Walker announced he will allocate $2.3 million investment in funding from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant for the Boys & Girls Club in his upcoming budget. This invest will help fund programs to improve the social, academic, and employment skills of low-income youth.
"The Boys & Girls Club provides a safe place and learning opportunities to kids across the state, and the Wisconsin After Three Initiative will be a good way to help our kids improve their reading and math skills," said Governor Scott Walker. "By teaching kids study habits, offering intensive tutoring, and exposing them to role models we will hopefully give these children a strong foundation on which they can build on for success in the future."
