As families get ready for the new school year, the Y reminds our community of programs that offer parents and caregivers peace of mind, enhance the learning of young people ages 2 ½ and up and give kids the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can be.

There are so many ways the Y is here for you this Fall, and all year long!

> The Y provides safe, trusted and nationally-recognized preschool, before and after school care, sports, teen leadership, arts and music enrichment, in-school support services, and year-round, critical water safety programs. Plan now for school break camps!


> Kids stay active at the Y, helping to combat childhood obesity by encouraging children to enjoy physical activity and learn about proper nutrition.

> The Y nurtures the potential in every child through programs that focus on the arts for all ages, as well as leadership, civic engagement and college-readiness activities for teens.

> Back to school can be challenging for children going through difficult personal and family experiences. The Y’s Counseling & Social Service provide in-school support for the emotional and social development of teens and adolescents in our communities.
