"Unplugged Wednesdays" connects Club members without a power cord

July 20th, 2011

This May, the Steil Boys & Girls Club decided to power down, literally. Staff members launched “Unplugged Wednesdays” after noticing one day that youth were flocking to play video games and use the computers instead of enjoying the beautiful spring weather.

“We decided that once a week on Wednesday, we were going to be completely unplugged,” said Club Director Erin Crison. “There is no TV, video games, or computers allowed.”
