On Feb. 5, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee unveiled the new Time Warner Cable Learning Lab at the Daniels-Mardak Boys & Girls Club on Milwaukee’s northwest side with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour.
The new learning lab includes computer science programming, math programming and incorporation of brand new tablets and computer updates to support this computer science and math programming.
As a long-time supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, TWC received official naming rights for the lab.
Now, the lab can begin to serve some of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Milwaukee’s most at-risk members, and the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) programming in the lab is a great fit for TWC’s Connect a Million Minds initiative, a five-year, $100 million cash and in-kind philanthropic initiative to address America’s declining proficiency in STEM, which puts the community’s children at risk of not competing successfully in a global economy.
Time Warner Cable Inc. is among the largest providers of video, high-speed data and voice services in the United States.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee (BGCGM), one of the largest and longest youth serving agencies in Milwaukee, offers structured after-school and summer programming to more than 41,000 children and teens each year.
Within the safety of 44 locations, youth have access to free meals, academic support, role models and opportunities to build character and explore new interests.
