In the Y After School Program, kids engage in physical, learning and imaginative activities that encourage them to explore who they are and what they can achieve. In addition to supplementing what they have learned in school, they are provided at least 30 minutes each day to work on their homework with assistance from Y staff, have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence. School age kids also have the opportunity to participate in STEAM activities (science, technology, engineering, arts, math), a variety of literacy activities and HEPA activities (healthy eating, physical activities).

Grades Pre-K -8th 

Monday-Friday on regular school days, from school dismissal though 6:00 p.m.
