MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Hundreds of kids in Milwaukee are going to school virtually at the start of the school year, and many of their families are getting help from the Boys & Girls Clubs.

"They haven't seen their club manager, Mr. Miles, for a long time. But we are really kind of training ourselves to teach kids other ways to engage and show excitement, and it's been hard."
