In addition to supplementing what they have learned in school, they participate in interactive learning models that engage critical thinking skills, are provided 30 minutes each day to work on their homework by trained YMCA staff, have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence.

Just $45 will send a kid to after school care for one week. Help a child be in a safe and nurturing environment with after school care and donate today.
