AFTER SCHOOL

After School, Kids Discover Their Potential at the Y

A new school year is filled with potential—a chance to start new routines and habits, build new friendships and discover new possibilities and interests. It’s an exciting time for many kids, however—at the end of the school day, 11.3 million kids head to homes where they are unsupervised form 3 to 6 p.m. according to Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit public awareness organization. As children transition from summer to fall, The Gateway Family YMCA is offering programs to school-aged children throughout our community to keep youth active, busy and engaged during out-of-school time.
