Albany, Troy Boys and Girls Clubs offer remote learning help

ALBANY — Taylor Joseph wrinkled her brows in concentration as she painted her “kitty cat” at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Albany Thursday, carefully dabbing her white-coated brush over the Styrofoam as her mask barely clung to the five-year-old’s face.

Taylor had already finished her math and science remote classes earlier in the morning — now it was time for art.

She was partaking in the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Capital Area’s new full-day program, which launched last week at the Troy and Albany locations to help students adapt to remote learning.

“We’re trying to fill the gaps with some parents that really need child care, that really can’t allow their kids to be home, or their kids need guided instruction,” said David Gordon, program manager and lyricism coordinator. “Along with virtual, you just need a third body to make sure they understand how to get online,

Banks that offer the lowest rates on education loans

For students, September has been a crucial month this year. In India, lakhs of students appeared for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE)  and National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) after a prolonged tussle with the central government.
