Ignite Your Child’s Potential

The Y Offers School Aged Enrichment that Parents Can Feel Good About

During these challenging times when your regular routine seems to change on a daily basis, one thing remains the same: your child needs a safe, enriching place to go when school is not in session plus before and after school day.

While the school year may look different than before, our program continues to be a familiar place where children can be safe. The health and safety of your child, your family our staff and our community is our top priority! 2020 2021 SACC Safety Plan

As an organization dedicated to youth development, we are working closely with the Board of Education! We know how important it is for a child to have an enriching place for learning and growth, both in and out of school. And we’re happy to be able to provide that place, allowing your child’s social, emotional, physical and academic journey to continue long. Are also proud to be able to provide you and your family with the services required to remain healthy.

Financial assistance is available to ensure every child and teen has the opportunity to learn and grow at the Y.

FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT 

We help kids reach their potential and thrive in a safe, trustworthy setting. We offer a curriculum that aligns with the school day and supports growth in literacy, science, math, science, engineering, and technology (STEM) while infusing the arts, physical activity, and fun. We teach kids confidence, encourage self-expression and enrich social development. Providing our youth with the support, encouragement and positive role models that they need, will not only increase their ability to succeed in school but in life. For families, we offer peace of mind knowing that your child is in a safe and educational program building new relationships and achieving more.

Your child’s growth, development, and education are important to us, as we do our best to ensure their future is bright.
