On October 3, 2022, MPTC Fond du Lac Medical Assistant students visited Boys and Girls Club of Fond du Lac kids for a fun, interactive Dream Big event.

The Dream Big project started in 2017 with Fond du Lac, Tri-County Area and Washington County Boys and Girls Club teens learning more about the over 100 careers available through MPTC. Each semester, Moraine Park student volunteers showcase their programs and make a true community impact for area teens to get excited about career choices!

MPTC Medical Assistant Student Kalli Behling said, “Working with The Boys and Girls Club was such an amazing experience. The Dream Big program allowed us to share our college experience with the younger generation. They were super interested in what we were learning and had a blast with the hands-on portion of our day. It was such an incredible feeling to see how excited they were to do blood pressures with us and use stethoscopes. I was once a Boy’s and Girl’s Club member, so coming back as one of the mentors was a very heart-warming experience. We really enjoyed working with all of the kids.”

Boys and Girls Club of Fond du Lac Director of Teen Services Dillon Wiese said, “Our kids love learning from Moraine Park students! We are always looking for opportunities to inspire our youth and encourage learning about future careers. Thank you MPTC!”
