Area schools get boost for resiliency program

Students at Algoma School District and two private schools in Kewaunee will get more help for their resiliency-based program. The Algoma Wolf Den received its final $76,000 grant for its programming as part of a larger $5 million distribution by the Basic Needs Giving Partnership. Algoma Wolf Den, which also supports students at St. Paul’s Lutheran School and St Mary’s Catholic School, matches older students with younger ones to help fulfill their mental and emotional needs through mentorship. Teal Van Lanen from Algoma School District says the program has gone beyond mentoring over time.

Algoma Wolf Den has received over $230,000 in grant funding since the organization’s creation, which now boasts close to 40 pairs of “wolves” and “pups.”
