Afterschool ActivitiesYMCA Afterschool programs strive to help each child reach their full potential by offering a positive and enriching environment that encourages the development of character, leadership, and cooperative spirit. We offer a variety of quiet and high-level activities to keep the days busy and fun.
Sports and games are organized throughout the day at Y Afterschool that can help get kids moving and active. These activities help develop the child's sense of fair play, teamwork, and physical coordination in a fun and safe environment.
During a day at the Y Afterschool, we dedicate quiet time for kids to work on homework or read. With dedicated child care providers available, each child will have access to the attention and assistance they may need in order to be successful on their educational journey.
The Y Afterschool is the perfect place to try new activities and grow. From journalism, cake decorating, art projects, dancing, and everything in between, there are various special interest activities kids can participate in to discover and develop their passions.
No day is ever the same at Y Afterschool. By incorporating a variety of events throughout the program, we can depart from a regular day-to-day routine but still promote leadership, volunteerism, organization, problem solving, and a sense of cooperation among their peers. These events can include dances, outings, talent shows, and community service projects.
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.
