Nurturing the potential of every child
Our program transforms the hours before and afer school into a time of opportunity for school-age students:
- Promoting holistic health – Our curriculum emphasizes healthy living in every aspect of our program, from the snacks we serve to activities and games we organize.
- Locally-based – We provide our program to students at their schools, working with educators to benefit as many families as possible.
- Learning outside the classroom – Students at all our schools have a quiet space to complete their homework and work with tutors based in their school system—as well as qualified YMCA staff—when they need academic help.
- A safe space for all – As part of the YMCA, we mobilize our region’s leading force for good to create a safe, nurturing environment for school-age children, regardless of their ability to pay.
