BROOKLYN - Kids at the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club are enjoying a brand new, state-of-the-art learning center. 

The renovations are all thanks to the Brooklyn Nets and Applebee's, who partnered up to make sure the children have a place where they can learn, grow, explore and discover to their full potentials. 

Additions to the upgraded center include custom wall art, furniture, a reading area and 10 Samsung tablets. 

Nets Point Guard Jarrett Jack, a former Boys and Girls Club kid himself, took time off from his busy playoff schedule to cut the ribbon unveiling the new place.
