At-home Learning Resources and Activities for Kids


Free, virtual groups are now being offered by CTC/HMGYC everyday. Parents must register their children one time for each type of group. They will then be registered for all future sessions for that group. After registration, they will get an email with the link to the group. The link will be the same for that group every week. It is recommended that they download the free Zoom Cloud Meetings app before the start of group.
