Youth Centers Up Hours And The Wi-Fi To Take In Kids While Schools Are Closed

The biggest challenge so far for employees of the Gene Slay’s Girls and Boys Club is getting the Wi-Fi to reach every nook and cranny where students are spread out doing lessons on their school-issued devices.

“Our building is basically a cinder block, so getting Wi-Fi through some of those hardy 1950s walls has been an interesting adventure,” said Jeremy Kane, a development officer for the club in the Soulard neighborhood.
