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. The Learning Web is a United Way agency

A huge thank you to the SPCA of Tompkins County for hanging out with the big pup on the right. Odyyn will be with the fine folks at the SPCA, through their Public Assistance program, until his caregiver is able to secure stable housing with the support of our Life Skills case managers. The other two, mom and pup are on a different adventure but will be reunited soon! Big thank you to the SPCA of Tompkins County and Joe who helped our staff navigate this process.
