After-school

We’re here for you! The Y After-School program is a place where we can nurture the potential of every youth. The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, learning about social responsibility and developing healthy habits that they will carry throughout their lives. With so many demands on today’s families, parents can get the much needed support from our program. The Y is about more than looking after kids, it’s about offering them a safe and nurturing environment where they can develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. 

 

LEARN, GROW & THRIVE WITH THE Y!
