YMCA After School Program
Lead CBO, The YMCA of Greater New York
A Community School is a partnership between the school staff, families, scholars, lead CBO and community resources. Community schools focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development. Studies show that community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities. As a Community School, we offer:
- Monthly events/workshops for families relevant to academic and health issues.
- Mental health and social services referrals are available to students and families.
- Weekly/monthly Student Council meetings
- Student Engagement Activities and Attendance Incentives.
The YMCA of Greater New York is here for all New Yorkers — to empower youth, improve health, and strengthen community. Founded in 1852, today the Y serves a diverse population of more than half a million New Yorkers who learn, grow, and thrive through programs and services at our 24 branches. Community is the cornerstone of the Y. Together, we connect active, engaged New Yorkers to build stronger communities.
