Beginning Monday, three Indianapolis YMCA locations will offer eLearning lab spaces for students grades 6 through 12 who do not have access to reliable internet services or an appropriate space to complete their schoolwork.

The lab spaces are scheduled to run through the end of the Indianapolis Public Schools fall semester (Dec. 17), according to a news release from the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis, and are available via reservation at bit.ly/34jqyoE.

The labs will be open to any student grades 6 through 12, regardless of whether they are members or enrolled in other YMCA programming. 

Labs can be reserved in two-hour blocks, with 15 minutes between each session reserved for cleaning and sanitizing. 

Students will be asked health screening questions and will be asked to practice social distancing while visiting the labs. 

Additional labs may open at other facilities in the future, according to the release.
