KID IMPACT: Meet Kayla!

Meet Kayla!!

Kayla has been a Claymont Boys & Girls Club kid since age 8.   She currently is working as a staff member of the Club.

Kayla is excited to share that she was recently accepted into one of our favorite community partner programs, Year Up!  Kayla will be a part of the February 2019 class and will be attending Wilmington University Investment Operations program.

Year Up Wilmington launched in 2017 and partnered with Wilmington University in July 2018. Year Up Wilmington offers an intensive, one-year program for college students, ages 18-24, combining professional coaching, hands-on skill development, and internships at some of America’s top companies. As college students, our young adults have access to the library, tutoring resources, and other services offered by the college, in addition to the services offered by Year Up. As students work toward completing a degree at Wilmington University, Year Up Wilmington provides them with professional development and work experience, preparing graduates to launch a meaningful career.

The success of Boys & Girls Club programs can be seen by the achievements of our youth, as we guide them along the road to high school graduation, with a solid plan for the future.  Way to Be Great Kayla!
