Boys and Girls Clubs across Georgia will soon be better equipped to address learning gaps caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Gov. Brian Kemp announced Tuesday that he will designate $15 million from the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) funds to advance student academic achievement by addressing learning recovery and other critical needs of youth brought on by the pandemic.

“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Georgia have done a remarkable job of serving the needs of youth across the Peach State,” said Kemp. “With this GEER funding, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Georgia will be able to further enhance student academic achievement by addressing educational gaps caused by the pandemic. I look forward to seeing the positive impact this funding has on youth across the State of Georgia.”
