MPTC cosmetology students at Boys and Girls Club

On February 27, 2018, Fond du Lac Boys and Girls Club kids in grades 5-11 were excited to meet and learn with MPTC Cosmetology students and their Instructor Eileen Bouchard!

BGC Director of Teen Services Dillon Wiese said, “Our teens were given the opportunity to participate in a presentation done by the cosmetology students from MPTC. They learned how to braid hair and give hand massages. They even played a fun game of Bingo! It was a great experience for those who participated and they really enjoyed being creative and showing off their talents. A huge thank you to the MPTC cosmetology students for providing our teens with a chance to about such a cool profession and the program as a whole.”

The idea for “Dream Big and Have Fun” began with MPTC District Student Government President/IT Club Vice President Phil Conley.  Phil was passionate about helping kids after volunteering with the IT Club internet safety project at Boys & Girls Club last year.  He had an awesome brainstorm to reach out to all the MPTC Clubs through Student Senate and make a plan for each one to visit  BGC to share some learning and fun from their programs/careers.  Clubs will be featured all throughout the months of March and April.  This is a great opportunity for MPTC students to earn service learning hours and for Boys and Girls members to get excited about future career choices!
