Yo quiero Boys and Girls Club!
The Eagle River Boys and Girls Club has received a $12,360 grant from the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens.
In a press release announcing the “Graduate to Go” experience grant, Eagle River club manager Tracy Hupe said the money will go a long way toward supporting programs in Eagle River.
“It’s because of partnerships like this that we are able to offer exciting career and college programs that ultimately help inspire our members to stay committed to earn their high school diplomas, dream big and be great,” Hupe said.
Teens from the Eagle River club will develop practical job skills through employment in ALPAR’s (Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling) Youth Litter Patrol Program and by completing the Career Launch program at the club.
