Caring for Kids Afterschool

We believe that every child and family should have access to affordable, high-quality childcare. More than 4,000 kids annually engage in enriching programs at the YMCA that aim to develop the whole child through physical activities, social emotional learning, creativity, responsible decision making, and fun educational activities. At the YMCA, 1 in 4 children in our programs receive financial assistance. We ensure that all children have access and don’t turn anyone away. 

Afterschool programs at the YMCA mean parents can continue their workday knowing their kids are thriving in a safe environment after the school bell rings. We are readying today’s kids for tomorrow’s world.  

  • $25 provides snacks for afterschool kids
  • $50 provides materials for afterschool lessons
  • $125 helps offset the cost of afterschool curriculum
  • $250 provides a month of afterschool care for a child and their family 

Thank you for making a gift that will allow us to expand access to programs for more kids and their families in our community.
