YouTube Gaming

YouTube Gaming, an app and website that aggregates more than 25,000 gaming channels to help gamers find videos from some of the platform's most popular creators like TwoSync and PewDiePie just recently launched. 

Gamers go to YouTube to look for a specific type of content on channels like HikePlay, Squadrom or  Drift0r, so the app-site combo helps filter out whatever's not related to gaming

Molloy College Energeia for Teens Community Service Learning Initiative


Energeia for Teens combines group discussion, skill-building exercises, and community service-learning experiences for teens ages 14-19. As teens learn about local challenges and are active in the development of solutions, they become change agents in their schools and neighborhoods. Students develop leadership abilities, identify topics of mutual interest and concern, and translate them into thoughtful activities through local community service projects.

Meetings are held at the Molloy Suffolk Center, 7180 Republic Airport, off of Rte. 110 in East Farmingdale 11735.


If you are interested in attending the orientation and/or joining the program, call us at 516.323.4706 or email energeiaforteens@molloy.edu.

For more information, visit the Molloy College Energeia for Teens website.

National Dance Day

Launched in 2010 by “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator and Dizzy Feet Foundation co-president Nigel Lythgoe, National Dance Day is an annual celebration that takes place on the last Saturday in July. This grassroots campaign encourages Americans to embrace dance as a fun and positive way to maintain good health and fight obesity.

Each year DFF creates instructional dance videos for people to learn and perform dance routines and share them with others as part of NDD. Created by favorite “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographers and featuring “So You Think You Can Dance” Alumni, our videos represent a range of dance abilities ensuring everyone can take part. This years track is “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon.
To watch the dances, go to the Dizzy Feet website.
