The San Luis Obispo County YMCA offers a dynamic after-school enrichment and safety program, funded through a grant and overseen by the California Department of Education in partnership with the Lucia Mar Unified School District. The YMCA program offers age-appropriate after-school enrichment activities designed to support academic achievements. Beyond academics, the YMCA after-school programs are dedicated to teaching each of the six pillars of character and increasing assets in our youth. Through programs such as these, the Y is helping youth develop skills such as self-regulation, communication, problem solving, negotiation and critical thinking. We know that all of these skills make learning easier as students grow. The students also receive healthy snacks and are involved in recreational activities aimed at increasing their physical activity and lowering the likelihood of childhood obesity.
