The YMCA Afterschool Academy will:

In addition to the above, the YMCA will engage students in global learning, college and career exploration, art exploration and 21st century skills (group work; conflict resolution; life/career skills).  

The YMCA offers programming when school is not in session at local YMCAs for an additional fee. Families will be provided full calendar information during the registration process.  A monthly fee ($259.00) will be charged for all participants and will be payable via bank draft.  The YMCA offers scholarships to those applicants showing financial need.  Learn more about scholarships at ymcabham.org/financial-assistance.
