Hockey Fun at Quitman!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The National Hockey Leagues’  New Jersey Devils stopped by the Y Afterschool Program at Quitman Street Renewal School to have some hands on fun with the scholars. The New Jersey Devils staff took over the gymnasium and set up various stations to teach puck skills, proper blocking, and accuracy. After the training, staff and students participated in a hockey match, giving the students exposure to a sport that they might not often get to play.

For more information about Y Afterschool Programs, please contact Tammea Tyler at ttyler@newarkymca.org.

Pre-Schoolers Dance Away the Chill!

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! For information about Little Bridges, contact Roneasha Bell at rbell@newarkymca.org.

Help In A Storm

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. For more information about how you can become involved in the Newark YMCA Social Responsibility initiatives, please contact Victor Nicholson at vnicholson@newarkymca.org.

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).

For more information about the Newark YMCA’s 21st Century Community Learning Centers, please contact Tammea Tyler at ttyler@newarkymca.org.

"This project was funded in its entirety with federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by No Child Left Behind, Title IV, Part B, 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) grant funds through a grant agreement with the New Jersey Department of Education.”
