Lower Grades YWCA Afterschool Program Information

We're excited about the start of our YWCA Lower Grades After-School program (Grades 6-8 only).  This year we are offering Cooking, Art, Dance and STEM classes for the fall semester.  We also offer homework help, youth development activities and a range of wonderful field trips throughout the year for our participants.  We usually finalize our schedule within the first two weeks because we allow our students to take a survey of clubs that they would want in our program.  Once we get an idea of the popular vote based on interest, we then finalize our official fall schedule. During the first two weeks, the students will complete an orientation and have a modified schedule of team building activities and special workshops. ​​
