The Y Enrichment Program provides children with a high quality, safe, convenient, recreational environment to complete their schoolwork while their parents are at work.


Our new Y Enrichment Program (YEP) allows children ages 5-12 to attend remote school support supervised by trained Y staff.


  • Homework Assistance
  • Thorough Safety Policies
  • Trained, caring, professional staff
  • Activities focused on fun, learning, and developing a positive self-image

Our Philosophy

  • To provide quality care for children, regardless of socio/economic background
  • To support and strengthen the family unit, especially during these unprecedented times
  • To help children develop to their fullest potential
  • To deliver the program in a positive Y environment of safety, support and care
  • To ensure and enforce a zero tolerance policy regarding Child Abuse and Neglect
