With the first few weeks of school under their belts, students' workloads are beginning to get more and more rigorous.  

And for some students, it can be the beginning of a frustrating school year where they're always struggling keep up in the classroom.

That's where after-school academic programs can help.  They provide another level support to students who need a little extra attention.

This week, we visit Our Next Generation, a non-profit serving students of all ages at its location near 35th and Lisbon in Milwaukee.  Listen in while they work on their reading and reasoning skills in the Homework Club.  Plus, hear from President Robert Dunn for more about the center.
