50+ Ways to Keep Your Family Sane During the COVID-19 Crisis
DYCD at Home
While we are all staying home to stop the spread of coronavirus, youth and families across NYC can stay connected to DYCD – we are bringing dance, music, art, filmmaking, and more right to you! Check out the opportunities below, and if you’re interested, there are a few different ways to get involved:
1. Send us a text at (347) 349-4361 to receive opportunities directly to your phone.
2. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter at @NYCyouth to get the most up-to-date announcements via social media.

Step It Up NYC
DYCD’s Step It Up NYC initiative began in 2009 as a youth engagement program focused on fusing the passion to move with the drive to create change. The aim of the initiative is to leverage the performing arts to build community leadership capacity in young people.
Coming soon, NYC youth will be able to join DYCD and our partners on Zoom for dance and step classes at home! For now, check out videos from the past ten years of Step It Up NYC on YouTube, and follow #stepitupnyc on Instagram to see what youth across the City have been working on in their own communities.
A family recipe is like a time machine. One taste instantly transports a person back to a time and place in their life when food brought families together. It could have been a picnic, a holiday celebration, or a family dinner. These tiny time machines not only provide information on the foods a family has enjoyed for generations, but they also create memories for generations to come.
Enter our Recipe Rescue competition to take your favorite family recipe and make it healthier! Healthy eating benefits everyone – affecting our energy and our moods, improving our minds, and helping us maintain a healthy weight. NYC youth and their families can work together to submit their updated recipes and host their own cooking demonstrations on DYCD’s IGTV and our YouTube page. You might even have your recipe published in our citywide cookbook!
My Voice NYC: Poetry & Spoken Word
If you are a poet or spoken word artist who wants to make their voice heard, join us for My Voice NYC, a series of virtual workshops and slams. NYC youth can submit original work on topics that matter to you, and DYCD will amplify your voice on our social media platforms and in an online anthology.
Art Activities & Contests
Want to showcase your art skills, or learn more about styles like digital art and comic books? We’re launching art contests with a different theme each week. We’ll feature the best art by NYC youth in an online gallery, and you may even find your original work on display in a neighborhood near you! Check out comic book art created by youth across NYC in our DYCD Heroes Project!
DYCD Film Festival
Calling all future award-winning filmmakers! Interested in having your work screened for thousands of people across NYC? Just want to learn the basics? The DYCD Film Festival will feature dozens of short films during a virtual event this spring, and DYCD is working with our partners to help you navigate the ins and outs of creating your first film.
Learn more on Film Freeway, and check out some of the best films from last year on our YouTube.

Borough President's Office Readers are Leaders Competition
The Readers Are Leaders Program challenges classes in Staten Island's schools to read a minimum of six books at or above grade level during the five-week period of February 18th through March 25th. One "exceptional" reader will be chosen from each school to be recognized at a ceremony in May. Since its inception in 1996, students have read more than 690,000 books for the annual challenge.
In addition, a new component has been added to the challenge this year. As a partner program and expansion of the successful Readers Are Leaders, Borough President Oddo also kicked off a new “Readers Are Leaders Jr.” program, challenging 1st graders to read “Mikey and the Dragons” by NYT bestselling author and former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, along with one book of their choice. This program will run concurrent to the fourth grade program.
As an added bonus to the challenge, any student who reads Mike's book series, "The Magic Shop," and writes a book report about one of the books will be considered for a special prize.
Students who participate in the 1st grade “Readers Are Leaders Jr.” challenge will be required to read " Mikey and the Dragons " by Jocko Willink. The Borough President's office distributed over 1,500 copies to participating schools throughout the borough.
“While you guys are all reading your 6 books, I am going to do my part and read a little for me. I am blessed to work with people at Borough Hall who also love to read. We got together to think about how we could make this program even better. So we decided to expand ‘Readers Are Leaders’ to the 1st grade with a ‘Readers Are Leaders Jr.’,” said Borough President Oddo.

Recently, a novel (new) coronavirus was detected in thousands of people worldwide, primarily in China. A "novel coronavirus" is a strain that has not been previously found in humans. This novel coronavirus can lead to fever, cough and shortness of breath. There are currently zero diagnoses in New York City, and the risk to New Yorkers is low. The City is monitoring the outbreak closely and working with our partners at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Right now, everyone should go about their daily lives, but practice the same
precautions you do during cold and flu season: Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when sneezing or coughing, wash your hands with soap and water often, and stay home if you are feeling sick. If you were recently in Wuhan, China and have a fever and either cough or shortness of breath, call your health care provider. At this time there is no need to cancel field trips.
To learn more, visit the Health Department’s website at nyc.gov/health and search: coronavirus.
