Fusion is a FREE after school gathering for middle school students in Red Wing. We meet on most Tuesdays during the school year from 3:00-5:00pm at First Covenant Church (across the street from Twin Bluff Middle School). Fusion is a collaboration of multiple organizations including Goodhue County 4-H, First Covenant Church, Red Wing Youth Outreach, and Every Hand Joined to provide a safe and positive youth environment geared toward students in grades 5-7 to develop life skills and build a support system with caring adults.
WHAT HAPPENS AT FUSION?
After school, students are invited to walk over to First Covenant and check in at the door. Then join us downstairs for hangtime where students have the option to play in our full-size gym or gather around many of the games in our youth room (which includes carpetball, ping pong, foosball, Xbox, Wii, board games, etc)! There is also a tutor on site to help with homework and a café to purchase an afternoon snack where everything is $0.75!
Fusion also provides elective opportunities for students to participate called Learning Experiences. Some of these learning experiences include a small engine class, baking/cooking class, art classes, outdoor adventure experiences, sports camps, field trips to the Goodhue County Historical Society, and more! You must pre-register for these learning experiences either online at this website below or through our learning experience kiosk at Fusion. Learning experiences are not required, but are highly recommended!
4-H, a locally lead youth development program from the University of Minnesota handles all of our registrations, as well as background checks and training of our volunteers. If you have questions about their role in the partnership, I encourage you to contact Aly Kloeckner (the 4-H Program Coordinator for Goodhue County) at firstname.lastname@example.org. By registering, your student can zip through the check in lines and is also given access to tons of other opportunities through 4-H programming and events.
