Struggling students and their families have a hard time accessing and navigating the maze of public and private services. There may be ample resources in a community, but rarely is there someone on the ground who is able to connect these resources with the schools and students that need them most. Through a school-based coordinator, we bring community resources into schools to empower success for all students by removing barriers for vulnerable students at risk of dropping out, keeping kids in schools and on the path to graduation and leveraging evidence, relationships and local resources to drive results. Our site Coordinator Angie Ruiz is very instrumental in the success of our Scorpions. Angie can be reached at 775-674-4915
The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows is proud to offer after school programs and services to our scorpions. Our students can participate in after school programs, such as homework club, dance teams, preforming arts, leaderships and much more. Memebership is $20 a year, however no student will be denied an opportunity to participate in Boys & Girls Club programming because of lack of financial resources. Please ask if you qualify for scholarships or financial aid. For more information please call Boys and Girl at 674-4915
