The Network is grateful to Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins for taking time to visit the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence at their Kennedy Elementary site.  On August 29th, the Congresswoman toured the afterschool program and watched the youth participate in a STEM activity facilitated by a 4-H representative.  The Network would also like to thank Cindy Green, District Director for Senator Jerry Moran’s office for visiting the YMCA’s afterschool program at Forest View Elementary on September 4th. During the visit, the YMCA youth practiced team building activities and demonstrated a STEM activity.

Thank you to all of the program staff for your hard work and to our legislatures for recognizing the importance of out-of-school time programming for Kansas youth!
