On April 11, 2018, Fond du Lac Boys and Girls Club kids in grades 5-11 were excited to meet and learn with Moraine Park Paramedic students!
Fond du Lac Boys and Girls Club Director of Teen Services Dillon Wiese said, “Our teens were given the opportunity to participate in a presentation done by the Paramedic students from Moraine Park. They learned about blood pressures, tourniquets to stop the bleed, CPR, and immobilizing a patient. The Paramedic students brought the training ambulance and our kids got to go inside and see the students start a real IV! The Paramedic students even let the Club kids try out the ambulance siren and lights! It was so exciting! What a fun learning experience for all those who participated! A big thank you to the Moraine Park Paramedic students and their Instructor John Gloede for providing our teens with a chance to learn about this important career.”
The idea for “Dream Big and Have Fun” began with the Moraine Park Technical College 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 and Girls Club last year. He had an awesome brainstorm to reach out to all the Moraine Park Clubs through Student Senate and make a plan for each one to visit the Boys & Girls Club 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 Moraine Park students to earn service learning hours and for Fond du Lac Boys and Girls Club members to get excited about future career choices!
