Through Little Bridges Early Learning Readiness Program, our little ones and their caregivers had the opportunity to explore ways to keep active when playing outside isn't an option. Fun activities were demonstrated in class so that caregivers could try them with the children at home, including yoga, scavenger hunts and freeze dance. Our goal was to give caregivers ideas to help keep the children they care for active during the winter months. Judging by the photo, the program was a success!

During the “Blizzard 2015,” Rivers of Living Water of NJ and Triolo Realty Group, Inc of Staten Island, NY, donated cases and cases of pampers and wipes to the residents of the Newark YMCA. Rivers of Living Water has been incredibly generous to the Emergency Residence Program of the Newark YMCA - they have fed our residents Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas breakfast and they will be participating in the Adopt-A-Room initiative in the near future.

Scholars at PS 30's 21st Century Community Learning Center in Jersey City recently completed their first Coding Class. Our students have been super excited about this class, focusing on attention to detail, critical thinking, articulating thoughtful questions, and learning how to work together as a team. Our 21st Century enrichment programs are exposing our scholars to a comprehensive STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
