The YMCA has been providing Afterschool Care and Summer Day Camp for more than 50 years. With programmatic oversight now being managed through our new Extend-A-Care YMCA branch, the Y now offers Infant/Preschool Care and an added 20 years of providing innovative, high-quality programming for Austin-area families. 

Without a traditional facility, the Extend-A-Care Branch may be the Austin Y’s best kept secret.

But the work is some of the most important that we do.

Our YMCA is volunteer-led and seeks to reflect the unique communities we serve. We continually work to identify key needs and develop programming to address them. We welcome your input in helping strengthen the foundations of our community.
