Y-Care gives young people an experience that can last a lifetime and inspire them to continue an involvement with the Y for years to come.

All Y-Care programs and special days off require a minimum number of participants for the program to run.

Afterschool Programming is designed to help kids in every community succeed, developmentally and academically.  Afterschool Programming focuses on five core content areas: academic achievement, creative expression, health and well-being, and teaching values and social skills.

ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

The staff is versed in academic tutoring.  Homework time is offered every day, and academic improvements are a focal point of our program.

CREATIVE EXPRESSION

Art is a great way for children to express themselves.

Every week the kids are encouraged to be creative through crafts or individual projects using many types of media.

HEALTH & WELL-BEING

Childhood obesity is on the rise. The Y-Care program is determined to help fight this epidemic.  Wholesome snacks are offered to the children every day.  The children engage in physical activities on a daily basis.

TEACHING VALUES AND SOCIAL SKILLS

The four core values at the Y are respect, honesty, caring and responsibility. Every day these values are implemented in the structure of our program. Staff members practice positive reinforcement, and encourage students to work together to create a healthy positive atmosphere.
