About this collection

The YWCA of the City of New York (YW-NYC) is working to adapt our youth development services in support of the kids and families of our Out-of-School Time and Girls Initiatives programs. Our goal is to ensure that we can continue to support each child’s educational needs.

With our community in mind, we have scoured the world-wide web for free educational resources available to everyone; for our YW families and beyond.  It is our hope that we can create a supportive virtual learning environment for our young people and a smooth transition back into classroom spaces, whenever that may be. Let’s move our young people forward!
