GET IN TOUCH.
Let us know if you have space in New York City, especially at the local level in the 5 Boroughs so we can help get kids into safe educational programming during the pandemic.
We're looking for spaces in churches and places of worship, community centers, apartment buildings with common space, even commercial real estate like store fronts and offices. If you have space with rooms of 200-350 square feet or more where we could safely hold classes with 10 children, with access to bathrooms, sinks, and somewhere to set up bagged lunches, please let us know. We're working with nonprofit programs to bring Arts and STEM classes to NYC kids. If you manage or own space or know of a potential space for this purpose, please get in touch via the form on this page.
Frequently Asked Questions
- What kind of programs are you talking about?
- We have partnered with a group of educators and nonprofits led by WeXL.org to run unique STEAM-based programs. Students will be engaged in hands-on learning involving media and entertainment, sports, scientific experiments, and more.
- What kind of support will I need to provide these programs?
- We are looking for organizations with available space that can be used to house these programs for NYC children in Kindergarten through 8th Grade. The programs will provide dedicated, approved staffing. Other than ensuring the facilities are available and safe, you have no role in the programs.
- How long will this program be running?
- These programs expect to run for 6-12 months. Over time, you can also look for additional tenants and programs through the growing thisspace community network.
- What insurance coverage will the program have?
- Programs will carry full insurance in compliance with city and state requirements to cover their operations and participants. Your organization and space will be included as a named party in the policy.
- What kind of facilities are required?
- We are looking for classrooms or spaces that can be used as classrooms for 10 to 20 students, with access to suitable restrooms, kitchen/pantry, and common space. Inspection and approval by education authorities (NYC DoE and DYCD) will be required.
