Our Afterschool Program is designed to provide your child with the perfect after school experience. We believe our program is unique because of our attention to building a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Some components include:

DAILY HOMEWORK SUPPORT During afterschool, the Y is committed to provide 30-45 minutes per day for kids to start their homework. We want to make sure your child has an intentional amount of quiet time to focus and work on school assignments, where staff and volunteers are available to answer questions and provide support. While homework help is provided, we feel it is also important for the parent to have an active role in their child’s homework. Homework help is only part of our afterschool program. During eLearning Days, the YMCA will provide internet access and space for students to complete scheduled tasks from 7:45am to 2:15pm. We will also incorporate “brain breaks” throughout the day to allow students time for other activities and socialization. Our YMCA staff team will work in partnership with your family to support academic success through assistance with classwork and homework assignments are successfully submitted by required deadlines will ultimately fall to participants’ families.

DAILY ACTIVE PLAY Each day the kids will have a little play time to burn off some energy before they hit the books. Kids will participate in at least 30 minutes of moderate to rigorous physical activity on days students have in-class learning or for an hour on eLearning days. This could be kickball or soccer, jump rope and hopscotch, or tag games and fitness challenges. The options are endless! We’ll also provide a healthy snack for them every day.

AFTERSCHOOL ENRICHMENT Participants also will receive one 45-minute academic enrichment program weekly to enhance the overall exposure to a balanced curriculum. This includes nutrition and wellness, 21st Century skills, college and career exploration, leadership development, service learning, arts and crafts, and global learning. All kids have potential and should have the opportunity to discover who they are, to express themselves, and to be nurtured to believe anything is possible. The Y works to improve the educational readiness, engagement, and outcomes of children so they can pursue their best possible future.

DAILY DEVOTIONS AND VALUES-BASED PROGRAMS What makes the Y experience unique is our commitment to promote Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Faith in all we do. This is done through devotions, small group discussions, academic enrichment and positive reinforcement of behaviors by great staff role models.
