Overseeing the Austin Y’s non-facility-based programs such as Afterschool Child Care, Summer Day Camp and Infant/Preschool, the Extend-A-Care branch has provided families with innovative, high-quality programs for more than 20 years. 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.
