Career development experiences at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee are vast; just this summer alone more than 300 Club members enjoyed job placement opportunities. But these experiences can stretch into fascinating technical fields and beyond traditional job and internship environments. Take it from nine Washington High School Club members, who took part in a great learning experience last month as amateur video game developers.
As part of their Circle 1 Network internship, the Club members designed and developed Chef Shifter, a video game that will help Washington High School culinary students learn about kitchen safety. The young game designers presented the project to more than 120 people across two sessions at Circle 1 Network’s offices last month, among which were local business leaders. The Washington High School Club members were exposed to great learning opportunities thanks to partnerships with Milwaukee Area Technical College and Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, who taught the Club members programming and art skills to complete the project.
Congratulations to our Washington High School Club members on a job well done in their internship. Thank you Circle 1 Network, MATC and MIAD for making this great experience possible!
