First National supports BGC
BEMIDJI – The First National Bank Bemidji Foundation recently made a $15,000 investment in Teen Programs at the Boys and Girls Club of the Bemidji Area.
The purpose of foundation is to support efforts that enhance, strengthen and improve the quality of life for area children and their families. With the investment from foundation, the Boys and Girls Club will assist teens in reaching their higher education goals by providing tutor and mentors; facilitating discussions between parent, teachers and teens; assisting in completing college applications; building understanding of financial aid forms and processes; and scheduling visits to technical schools, colleges and universities. In addition, teens will learn about future career interests and gain job readiness skills such as how to write a resume and job interviewing techniques.
