Children and teens learn values and positive behaviors as they’re encouraged to explore their unique interests and gifts. This makes for confident kids today and contributing adults tomorrow.
The purpose of the YMCA Afterschool Program is to help youth develop to their fullest in spirit, mind, and body by incorporating the core values of caring, respect, honesty and responsibility. We focus on behavioral expectations, strong curriculum, and opportunities for youth participation and development. Our four Core Components are Homework Support, Health & Well-Being, Arts & Culture and Science. These components provide broad categories for daily activities, projects and clubs.
