The Jamestown Area YMCAs offers several after school programs.
Combining play with academics, the Y's afterschool program provides learning enrichment through arts, music, physical education, sports and nutrition. It also provides children with an extra support system to help them achieve and reach their full potential.
"Learning enrichment after school is essential to increasing children's success in school," said Ronda Migliore, Jamestown YMCA child care executive."The opportunity to get additional learning and support and participate in meaningful activities can inspire the motivation and ability to succeed."
Studies show participation in afterschool programs helps boost school attendance and academic performance.
In the Jamestown Area YMCA's after-school programs youth receive help with homework, tutoring tough subjects and can also explore art, science, literacy, community service, physical fitness, healthy lifestyle choices and so much more.
Financial assistance is available to those in need, to ensure every child and teen has the opportunity to learn and grow at the Y.
