Dakota's Story

For Dakota, grade 5 and 6 were especially difficult. “I used to miss every single assignment,” Dakota said. Fear of making mistakes and being easily frustrated was at the top of her list. Learning to cope with barriers is a learned skill and she found her path to develop to these skills at the Wooster Boys and Girls Club.

She started out receiving tutoring and homework assistance. Dakota’s grades quickly rose. In addition Dakota also developed her character and built life skills. “The Boys and Girls Club staff coached me in facing my fears, organizing my school work and overcoming set backs. These skills, and the homework help, built up my self-esteem.” a more confident Dakota states.

Dakota knows the Club taught her some life lessons. “I’m okay stepping out of my comfort zone. I tackled and overcame some rough spots. I am prepared for High School.”
