After School, Kids Discover Their Potential at the Y
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, 11.3 million kids head to homes where they are unsupervised from 3 to 6 p.m. according to Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit public awareness organization. As children transition from summer to fall, the Y is offering programs to school-aged children throughout North Texas to keep youth active, busy and engaged during out-of-school time. Through a well-rounded approach to youth development, the Y’s afterschool program offers activities in a caring and safe environment during the critical hours after school. Whether through sports, mentorship, or academic support, the Y nurture the potential of youth throughout the school year.
In the Dallas Y’s afterschool program, youth receive qualified and caring role models who offer structured homework and reading time, healthy snacks & physical activity, and critical thinking enrichment activities. It’s also an opportunity for families to ensure their kids are receiving additional support, continued learning, and a chance to participate in meaningful activities that can inspire children’s motivations and abilities to succeed.
We are committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, supporting their social-emotional, cognitive, and physical development from birth to career. So…are you ready for your kids to discover something new? Enroll in our Afterschool program today!
