Afterschool Programs

The YMCA Before & Afterschool Program balances the needs of youth, families and local schools in a fully licensed, supportive and nurturing environment. We believe that children should have meaningful experiences and activities that complement and expand their school experience. We also understand the role that YMCA staff play in exposing youth to positive role models who build their self-esteem and sense of community.
