YMCA AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Learning Doesn't End With the School Bell
At the Y, we believe all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. Our Afterschool programs provide a fun, safe place for kids to learn, grow and thrive.
Y Afterschool Programs are available at the YMCA main campus and various school locations in Collier County. We provide support with a caring and encouraging environment. We empower them by providing programming that, in addition to giving them something to do, builds academic and creative abilities.
Available for children in grades K - 5, all of our after school programs provide a range of activities, including: Academic enrichment and homework assistance, Structured activities that provide kids with physical activity outside, Hands-on, engaging activities to do inside, Healthy snacks, Arts & crafts and much more! Our afterschool activities gives kids the opportunity to become a confident kid today and a healthier, happier grown-up tomorrow.
In addition to enriching lives, we are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
