After School Enrichment Classes

SUPPORTING KIDS
IN AND OUT OF SCHOOL

 

At the Y, we care just as much about the future of our community’s children as you do. That’s why we work hard to provide our students with the best chance of success. We help to increase student achievement and reduce risk-taking behaviors through academic support, as well as health and social enrichment programming.

FINANCIAL AID

We strive to keep the Y accessible to everyone. With the support and generosity of our donors through our annual campaign, we assist everyone who qualifies.

Please fill out the electronic Financial Aid Request form and submit via email.

Y CARE FAMILIES

We will continue to offer our state-licensed child care program, so if you’re currently a Y Care family, this is not replacing that program. For families currently attending Y Care, you can also register for classes at a discounted rate. We will need to verify attendance first and will apply a discount once registration is complete. Kids may attend Y Care once their class is completed each day.
