Times are weird. Without having the option to go out and socialize or explore, it can be easy to get bored. Fortunately, a lot of companies and organizations are offering free programs and entertainment to help turn their boredom into productivity and fun! Check out some of these free online resources to inspire your mind, imagination or body.
