Dear Manhattan Youth Families,

Manhattan Youth is still doing what we do best, helping children and families in the best ways we can. We, like everyone else, are working under challenging circumstances and we look forward to even brighter times ahead.


Learning Labs at Manhattan Youth: Since mid-September we have successfully participated in the Learning Labs program through the Department of Education and DYCD. Seeing the smiles on children's faces everyday helps remind us that everything is going to be alright!


Manhattan Youth After-school and Aquatics programs: We have begun a slow roll out and re-opening of our Aquatics and Afterschool programs at the Community Center. Many of you have asked for more, and we have plans to add on in the coming weeks.


After-School Programs for 6th -8th Grade: Our After-School programs in 25 schools have begun online as well as in person. More in person rollouts will be happening each week.



Community Center Programs:  Our Community Center membership programs are now open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, including Family Swim! Swim lessons have also begun on a limited basis, following strict reservation and safety protocols. Beginning June 28th our Center membership programs will happen all 7 days of the week.


Manhattan Youth has always been here to answer the needs for children and families, even in times of difficulty. We are doing everything we can to meet this challenge in the safest, best ways possible. 


Thank you for your continued support!




Bob Townley
