Trumansburg & Ulysses

The Village of Trumansburg and Town of Ulysses offer programs for middle school and high school aged youth, after school and in the summers.

T/Burg Ulysses Youth Employee Program - provides first time employment opportunities for youth during summer months.

Program Opportunities

Programs are open to youth entering grades 5-8, and follow CDC and NYS Covid-19 guidelines.

Due to Covid density protocols, programs will be limited to max 10 total peoples (instructor included). This means that space in program is very limited. If you are placed on a waitlist and have any questions please contact Ethan at egc24@cornell.edu. You will be notified if your child is off the waitlist.

Magic the (afterschool) Gathering

Tuesdays, April 5 - May 3. 3:00-5:00pm

Is back! Learn to play a popular card game or come show us your honed skills! Participants will walk from school to Church of the Epiphany, 11 Elm Street. Pick-up at Church of Epiphany.

Middle School Cooking/Baking

Wednesdays, April 6 - May 4, 3:00-5:00pm. 

Cook and bake delicious meals and treats with your friends. Participants will be given snack AND also treated to their cooked meals. Please note, unlike virtual programs, participants will not be cooking for their families (maybe a bit will come home but not a meal), so please do not count on this program providing supper! Participants will walk from school to Church of the Epiphany, 11 Elm Street. Pick-up at Church of Epiphany.

PhotoVoice

Thursdays, April 7 - April 28, 2:45p-5:15pm. 

This program gives participants an opportunity to critique and compliment our community through photography. What do you love about where you live? What do you find beautiful? What needs work? What will help youth thrive!? These questions will be explored through photography, drawing and a tiny bit of writing. Students can use cell phones or provided point and shoot cameras (most cell phones have better cameras than the cameras we have!). Most weeks will include a field trip in a van. Participants will walk from school to Church of the Epiphany, 11 Elm Street. Pick-up at Church of Epiphany.
