School-Age Child Care

Our year-round licensed school-age child care for kids in kindergarten-8th grade makes sure that your child's time is spent creatively and constructively. We focus our program on character development values which help children learn, grow and thrive.

YMCA Black Achievers

Our YMCA Black Achievers program motivates teens in grades 8-12 to pursue higher educational and career goals so that they may reach their fullest potential. The Y’s Black Achievers program has awarded millions of dollars in scholarship money since its inception and will continue to serve as motivation and support for minority students.

YMCA Youth Achievers

We believe that students should be involved with positive activities from an early age. And that's exactly what our YMCA Youth Achievers program does. Students ages Kindergarten through 8th grade develop social skills and self esteem while making new friends. Our culturally-based program includes educational field trips, workshops on a variety of topics, our spring break trip and more. This program serves as an early introduction to the importance of education.

YNOW

Our YNOW program works with kids and teens, ages 11-15 with at least 1 incarcerated parent. This 12-month mentoring program begins with a 4-day retreat/camp. The retreat is followed by 12 months of 1:1 support from an adult volunteer, and group meetings 2x/month. Special activities throughout the year include fundraising, a youth trip, a lock-in, a community service project, and a graduation celebration.

Upon completion, youth have the opportunity to serve as a Youth Leader supporting the next group, and/or attend alumni gatherings. This leadership experience and the support given to these students is life changing and can lead to better choices, more education, and offer the opportunity for success in life.


We put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
