The impact of St. Norbert College Youth Services Partnerships

Dr. Gregory R. Maass, superintendent, Green Bay Area Public School District
"St. Norbert College continues to be an important and valued partner of the Green Bay Area Public School District and has worked closely with us and the various community-based organizations with whom we contract for the provision of extended learning services, including the Boys & Girls Club, YMCA and others."

Kevin Konkol, senior director of operations, Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay
Providing additional opportunities for low-income and minority youth to experience academic/social enrichment and college/career awareness is critical to the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay's (BGCGB) role in developing productive youth who graduate on time and are prepared to pursue postsecondary education programs and meaningful careers. For this reason, the BGCGB has agreed to partner with St. Norbert College to identify and recruit Saturday Scholars Academy (SSA) participants and to provide space at our Clubhouse locations for a series of SSA sessions that incorporate hands-on learning involving literacy and STEM disciplines.

Student volunteer
"The most positive aspect of this program was the reality of it all. I was able to face diversity, which I could not do in my hometown. I was able to make friends with some of the kids there, and it made me so happy knowing that they were excited to see me every Monday and Wednesday."

Student volunteer
"I have a personal relationship with one of the girls at the club. We both had a discussion about college and the future for her, and what she wants to do with her life. She felt comfortable talking to me, and ever since that first night when we talked, she gives me a hug every night I am there. I feel that I truly am an impact on her and I am a role model for her to go to college and pursue anything she wants.
