The Y Keeps Kids Safe

A new school year is filled with potential—a chance to start new routines and habits, build new friendships and discover new possibilities and interests. It’s an exciting time for many kids, however—at the end of the school day, 1 in 5 children kids do not have someone to care for them after school, according to Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit public awareness organization.
As families are transitioning from summer to fall, the YMCA of Snohomish County is offering programs to school-aged children throughout Snohomish County to keep youth active, busy, and engaged during out-of-school time. Through a well-rounded approach to youth development, the Y’s programs offer activities in a caring and safe environment during the critical hours after school. Whether through sports, mentorship, or academic support, the Y nurtures the potential of youth throughout the school year.
“School-Age Care at the Y is an opportunity for families to ensure their kids are safe before and after school,” said Scott Washburn, President & CEO, YMCA of Snohomish County. “In addition, they are receiving additional support, continued learning, and a chance to participate in meaningful activities that can inspire children’s motivations and help them reach their potential.”
The Y is a leading nonprofit committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, supporting their social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development from birth to career.
The Y helps kids reach their potential and thrive in a safe, trustworthy setting and offers a curriculum that aligns with the school day and supports growth in literacy, math, and science while infusing the arts, physical activity, and fun. The curriculum appeals to kids and teaches confidence, encourages self-expression, and enriches social development. Providing youth with the support, encouragement, and positive role models they need, will not only increase their ability to succeed in school, but in life.
The YMCA of Snohomish County offers affordable pricing based on income. DSHS subsidies are welcome. Multi-child discount for families with more than one child from the same household.
