We’re here for you! The Y After-school program is a place where we 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 environment where they can develop healthy, trusting relationships and
build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Includes homework assistance from college educated staff and fun hands-on activities that explore various curriculum's that increase youth’s passion for learning. From music and
movement to journalism, kids get to explore different topics throughout the school year that help identify and nuture sparks, and teach them new skills.
Staff & Safety
Our staff are carefully selected and screened prior to starting work with your child. Staff undergo trainings throughout the school year on classroom management, positive
conflict resolutions, innovative curriculum development, risk manangement, the 40 Developmental Assets, and how to live the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our staff
are passionate cause-driven leaders who enjoy making a positive impact. At the Y, we are committed to providing a welcoming environment where everyone is physically and
emotionally safe at all times.
We Partner with Schools
We work with the schools to provide care on school campuses with support and help from the school districts. Our curriculum is coordinated with the school to compliment and support the
children’s school day.
We Listen to our Parents
We conduct yearly surveys to assess parent satisfaction and use the data to strengthen our programs and procedures.
