The Ukrainian American Youth Association NYC branch is seeking funds to upgrade the classrooms and facilities used by the children who participate in classes and activities in the NYC branch.
If you are not familiar with our organization, we guide Ukrainian youth toward their heritage to become knowledgeable and active members of their Ukrainian and local communities as a whole. We offer opportunities for social interpersonal contact and mutual support and to stimulate their spiritual, intellectual, social, cultural, educational and physical development.
Children aged 4-18 attend weekly classes with Ukrainian teachers who provide instruction in Ukrainian language, history, and culture. In addition, we hold cultural events such as traditional Easter egg painting, holiday caroling and cooking traditional Ukrainian food. We offer these classes in the heart of New York City, in the "Ukrainian Village," with many events open to the public.
The donations will go to building out our educational programs, Ukrainian children's library and classroom upgrades like "smart" technology so teachers can access multimedia and online content for students. This fundraiser will also cover a few cosmetic upgrades and classroom repairs.
Your generous donations supports the next generation of Ukrainians!
