Virtual Learning Support Centers are in-person sites throughout the community designed to assist families in need of supervision, nutrition, internet connectivity, and support during this period of remote school instruction.

Live Well Erie Cares Act Child Care Fundingis currently in place to support the Virtual Learning Support Centers through December 31, 2020. Say Yes Buffalo has been designated by the Buffalo Board of Education to administer this programming for Buffalo students.

Support Centers will be operated independently by community-based organizations including child care centers, churches, community centers, and youth-oriented agencies. Transportation will NOT be provided.

The program is open for all students currently in grades K-8!

For registration, questions, and further information, please contact the site where you would like your students to attend from the list below!

Virtual Learning Support Centers will be offered at NO COST for those at or below the New York State Median Income. For those who have income greater than the below income threshold, please contact the Support Center directly for information. For reference purposes, the following income eligibility guidelines are expected to be implemented in most, if not all, cases:
