About the event
Our guest speakers this month are Cindy Altergott, CEO of the YMCA of Kenosha, and Jake McGhee, VP and CPO of Jockey International. They will present on the Teen Achievers program.
The YMCA Teen Achievers program is an extension of our Achievers Afterschool program which has a focus on math, reading, and social-emotional learning. The Achievers program was launched in 2017 at Frank Elementary School and then expanded to Brass Community School and our next step was to expand to middle school. The Teen Achievers curriculum is based on Five Pillars of Success; Academics, College & Career, Positive Relationships, Life Skills, and Positive Identity and targets students between the ages of 11-14. The expansion of the YMCA Teen Achievers program to Lincoln Middle School was made possible by the support of Jockey.
Since its inception in 2005, Jockey International, Inc.'s (Jockey) philanthropic initiative, Jockey Being Family Foundation, Ltd. (JBF), has focused on supporting programs that help strengthen adoptive families nationwide by providing funding to nonprofit organizations, enabling them to provide critical post-adoption services. Now, Jockey is expanding its efforts by “adopting” Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha, Wis. with a new partnership beginning this fall and continuing throughout the 2021-2022 school year. As part of “adopting” Lincoln Middle School, Jockey contracted the Kenosha YMCA to operate its Teen Achievers program each day after school during the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years. In addition to partnering on the YMCA after-school program, Jockey is working with KUSD and will sponsor additional educational and enrichment programs for Lincoln students and their families.
