In YMCA After-School Care, kids engage in physical, learning and fun activities during the time after school to help them explore who they are and what they can achieve. In addition to supplementing what they have learned in school with homework help, they participate in interactive learning models that engage children in critical thinking skills. They are also given 30 minutes of physical activity each day to help them stay active and healthy, as well as a nutritious snack. In YMCA After-School programs, children have a chance to socialize with each other and form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth and self-confidence.
The YMCA has after-school locations throughout the Greater Richmond area. We offer after-school care for Henrico, Hanover, Chesterfield, Goochland and Powhatan Counties. As well as Richmond city and the city of Petersburg. YMCA After-School Care programs are licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.
