Y Afterschool is a program provided in collaboration with your school district. We uphold the heritage, tradition and values of the Y throughout our program activities. Our events reflect non-denominational, universal beliefs that transcend all cultures. We consistently demonstrate respect and support for all families, appreciating their right to determine and practice their own beliefs.

The purpose of our afterschool program is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for all children by promoting healthy character development of spirit, mind and body. We work collaboratively with families, communities and school districts to ensure that each child receives a consistent set of life skills for success. To meet these goals, our Y Afterschool program incorporates the five Y Core Values, the 40 Developmental Assets set forth by the Search Institute, and the experiential learning model.
