ONEIDA COUNTY - Members of the community plan to bring a chapter of The Boys and Girls Club to Oneida County.
An informational meeting held at Nicolet College, educated community members how it's different from the YMCA.
Rhinelander Police Sergeant Kyle Parrish is leading the initiative.
He said there is one major difference between the two organizations.
"The biggest difference between The Boys and Girls Club and the Y is that its 1st grade through 12th grade," said Parrish. "The Y only goes until kids are 12-years-old. So that's one of the bigger significant differences."
Parrish said The Boys and Girls Club focuses on different areas of development than the YMCA.
"They deal with the science, mathematics, engineering, and technology," said Parrish. "It's going to help kids become better citizens and good adults," said Parrish.
Even though the YMCA and The Boys and Girls Club have their differences, a Senior Director at the YMCA Stephanie Ruckheim said she hopes they can work together in the future.
"Maybe there's a way in the future we can share some space, just working together and making sure that our youth is taken care of," said Ruckheim.
Parrish plans to hold another meeting for The Boys and Girls Club proposal at a later date.
They are still in the process of looking for a building that fits their needs.
