Summer in Albany: there's a map for that
N.Y. (June 27, 2019) -- It’s day one of summer break and if your student
is already looking for something to do, the City of Albany has your
Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams joined Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan,
Albany Public Library Executive Director Scott Jarzombek, and Department
of Recreation Commissioner Jonathan Jones to announce a
comprehensive database listing summer programs scheduled to be held
throughout Albany this summer.
“It takes a community to ensure our students’ success,” said
Adams at the Lincoln Park Pool event where the the first-of-its-kind map
for Albany students and young people was announced.
The online directory provides the name, program description,
age requirements, start and end dates and times, cost (if any), contact
information and whether or not transportation and meals are provided. It
can be filtered for easier use and is downloadable.
“It’s great to have partners in the City who think holistically
about what our kids need,” explained Mayor Sheehan.
In addition to providing quick and easy information to
families, the database is expected to help city leaders, the district
and community partners determine where there are gaps so meaningful and
safe activities can be added in future years.
