PHOENIX — Children from the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale are getting an opportunity to engage and interact with students from around the world.

AHA!101 has partnered with the organization to launch a 21st century pen-pal program. The company has equipped children with tablets installed with the Woogi U program.

“The best part is that we get to talk with other kids from China and Canada,” Miguel, 10, said. “We get to learn languages that we don’t know and they get to learn languages they don’t know.”

Despite the easygoing social-media setting, the ultimate goal is to help the children dominate the English language while developing critical life skills, such as critical thinking, cultural understanding and teamwork.
