This week, the New York City mayor’s office launched a new website for teens called “Fun at Home.” The site offers safe virtual activities to help teens stay engaged (and at home). Fun features include exercise and dance videos, free audiobooks, art contests, free NBA League and NFL Game Passes, and city-wide Mario Cart tournaments, plus school-related resources like virtual college tours, online tutoring and practice SAT and GED tests.
Check it out on the Growing Up NYC website.

While we have no teens at home, I will report that my husband has signed up for online yoga classes. The virtual college tours will be crucial this year I think. My son’s former high school is looking to connect seniors with alumni at various colleges for onsite information that they would otherwise get on the college tour. It’s truly a weird time (did I mention that husband signed up for yoga, yeah, so weird).

I thought the virtual college tours were cool, and I like the idea of college alums connecting with high school seniors. What a strange time we are living in.
