MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The Moultrie YMCA received a 5-year grant to help students succeed.
The 21st Century Learning grant provides after school help in math and reading for students from four elementary schools.
The students are referred by their teachers.
The program is just beginning... But leaders say it is already showing success.
"The children, they've shown significant increases in math and reading scores, CRCT, meet and exceed as well as homework grades and completion," said Lynn Hamm, CFO.
The students also get a free meal each day through another grant provided through the Y-USA and Walmart Foundation.
