As families settle in to the 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 Community YMCA 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 during and after school with the Y’s Healthy U program in partnership with the Horizons Foundation, 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.
