Our after-school program focuses on building self-confidence and character. We emphasize the Y’s four core values in character development — caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility – in every activity and interaction. In addition to supplementing what students learn in school, they have the opportunity to participate in a variety of structured activities, get assistance with their homework from trained YMCA staff, have a chance to socialize with their peers and form new relationships.

Education Release:

We are proud to be partnering with  Reading Champions, a volunteer organization focused on building reading skills and confidence. Volunteers will visit our program twice each week and work with students individually. To better facilitate each student’s growth, we ask parents to sign the education release on the enrollment forms so that we may secure each child’s reading levels from their schools. 

Early Dismissal
Early dismissal days are included. Students will be bussed from Hamilton Avenue and New Lebanon schools at their early dismissal times.

Holidays
The program will not operate on school holidays. Vacation Camp Days at the YMCA are available for an additional fee.
