YWCA York supports families in three different school districts in York County by providing before-and/or after-school care as well as full-day care for school-age students (Kindergarten through 6th grade, except where noted) when school is out of session. At our school-age sites, staff members work cooperatively with the schools to meet families’ needs. We strive to create an environment where students can get what they need before and after school — fun and active outdoor play; creative arts; engaging, child-directed projects; support in homework; opportunities to practice emerging pro-social and leadership skills; and a safe place to build friendships and solid relationships with adults. Breakfast and snack are also provided.

It’s a movement, a bold and concerted effort to build strong kids, strong families, and a stronger York through a spectrum of endeavors and services. From youth development programs… to family focused activities… all the way to urban renewal initiatives that enhance our city while creating affordable housing opportunities. No, this is not your father’s YMCA. It’s your family’s… your community’s… and, more than ever before, yours.
