Neighborhood and Community Services Announces NCS Connects
NCS Connects: A New Virtual Resource for Youth by Fairfax County’s Department of Neighborhood and Community Services
When NCS Community and Teen Centers closed their doors due to COVID-19, it was only a matter of weeks before youth members began asking staff when they could come back. Not knowing when that might be, NCS launched NCS Connects, a virtual platform for 1st through 12th graders of all abilities and their parents.
NCS Connects is designed to emulate the experience of visiting a Community or Teen Center. The platform features original programming such as self-directed activities and videos led by staff members, as well as on-demand resources for youth and parents in five categories: adapted virtual learning, culture, academics, health and wellness, and STEAM. New content is added every Monday and includes fun games, creative arts and crafts, simple cooking projects, sports and training basics and more, plus valuable resources the whole family can enjoy.
