Our Program 

Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe time well spent in a fun, safe and supportive environment before and after school is a primary building block for quality of life and future success of children. Children feel connected at the Y, where they can make friends and learn the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We promote positive self-esteem, life skills, teamwork, leadership, creativity and educational success.


The Y’s Before and Afterschool Program is centered upon activities and opportunities that focus on eight core components:

1. Literacy
2. Character development
3. Health, wellness and fitness
4. Service learning - Leadership
5. Arts and humanities
6. Science, math and technology
7. Social competence and conflict resolution
8. Academic and homework support

Our Vision – Healthy living, youth development and social responsibility.

Our Values – Building character through the promotion of caring, respect, honesty and responsibility.
