Y Afterschool Registration: 2019-2020 School Year Now Open


Y Afterschool Registration is Now Open

ABOUT Y AFTERSCHOOL The YMCA afterschool program is the ideal out-of-school time opportunity for your child to grow academically, emotionally, and physically. Y Afterschool offers a constructive balance of counselor led activities and free time for child exploration. Curriculum is aligned with the school standards and includes enrichment activities (arts, science/math, wellness & nutrition, leadership development, college & career readiness, service learning, global learning & inclusion, 21st Century skills, and literacy). In addition, the YMCA of Austin provides CATCH physical activity curriculum, time for homework, a nutritious daily snack, and outside-playground time. At Y Afterschool, children will learn new skills, build relationships, and find their sense of belonging. 

As with all YMCA programs, afterschool staff emphasize and model the YMCA five core character values (respect, responsibility, honesty, faith, and caring), and the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets. Participants gain confidence, explore new areas of interest, and make new friends in a safe and nurturing environment.
