Neighboring Organizations Joining Forces in the 2023

St. Mark Youth Enrichment and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dubuque are expanding a “long-standing collaboration.” Change is ahead as neighboring organizations St. Mark Youth Enrichment and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dubuque will work together to provide more benefits and opportunities for area youth.

Starting in the 2023-24 school year, Dubuque St. Mark Afterschool Programs will take place at the Boys & Girls Club (BGC). Afterschool programming for St. Mark’s Peosta Elementary & Dyersville Elementary will continue on location at those schools. The shift will mean St. Mark will be able to continue its work with kids from Lincoln, Audubon, and Marshall elementary schools in one location, with the goal of being able to reach more kids in the coming years.

St. Mark will work with the RTA (Regional Transit Authority) and Trolleys of Dubuque to provide transportation from participating Dubuque schools to the BGC. Parents will pick up students at the Club. School-year programming in Dubuque is free for all eligible students thanks to support from 21st Century Grant Funding.

Kids will be able to eat dinner together during after school programming, older St. Mark students will have the option to stay at the Club after 5:30 PM, and both organizations will have increased capacity to work with more children and provide more caring adults for every BGC and St. Mark student in the future.
