Boys & Girls Clubs Open Remote Learning Centers for the School Day
If you live in the Red Bank or Asbury Park area, you can get some huge help with remote/distance/virtual learning if that's the way your kids have to school from home.
With area school districts offering all different kinds of virtual and hybrid learning as opposed to being inside the school building all day, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County have opened Remote Learning Centers during the school day at their Asbury Park and Red Bank locations to assist children with their remote education. This could be a huge help to parents, too.
Many working families have been scrambling to find a safe space during the day for their children who have to do remote learning instead of being allowed inside the school every day. The Club is providing supervision by trained Youth Development Professionals, assistance with technology and printing needs, and help with following class schedules and meeting deadlines. Breakfast and lunch are also provided. What a gift to those in need in these communities, especially for parents who can't stay home with their kids all day. The Executive Director of BGCM says,
"These Remote Learning Centers will ensure that parents don’t have to make the gut-wrenching choice between going to work and helping their kids with school work. The Club will be there to see that kids log on, stay focused, and get the support they need."
The Remote Learning Centers are open from 8 AM until 2 PM five days a week in Asbury Park, with two- and three-day options in Red Bank. Costs vary between the two locations, and scholarships are available. The use of Club technology (laptop and desktop computers) can be arranged in advance on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Red Bank center is located at 138 Drs. James Parker Blvd, on the corner of Bridge Avenue. The Asbury Park center is located at 1201 Monroe Avenue. To register your child or to learn more, CLICK HERE.
