The Learning Web

Young people—adolescents and young adults—are The Learning Web’s reason for being. Assisting them on their journey to adulthood is our mission. Our program foundation is the community-based, mentor-apprentice/ hands-on learning experience — a model that connects young people with adults, sparks a passion, helps youth learn life skills and envision a rich future; all helping youth evolve into engaged citizens who value themselves and their community.

The Learning Web

The Learning Web has been working with Tompkins County youth since 1972, helping them make a successful transition from adolescence to adulthood. Assisting over 12,000 youth—3,500 of these homeless youth—our programs enable a diverse group of young people to participate in a range of services that include apprenticeships, employment and life skills training, as well as in a supervised housing program for homeless youth. Through these programs, our participants have developed valuable skills that support them as they find their place in today’s complex world.

What an awesome crew!! This semester these middle schoolers volunteered at 6 organizations in the #ithaca community, and wrapped up their program by organizing this bake sale to benefit the Cayuga Nature Center! Together, they raised $140 for @cayuganaturecenter and had a blast doing it. Well done, DeWitt volunteers!!
