After school programs like the YMCA’s After School programs have been proven to increase attendance during the regular school day. Creating a fun learning environment both in and out of school is key to keeping kids engaged and set up for success.
The Y's after-school kids are
- Bus pick up from Northwest Schools to the Reservoir Branch or bus pick up from Clinton Elementary Schools to Clinton Branch
- Opportunity to swim
- Create life-long friendships with plenty of activity time
- Given a healthy snack
- Have access to the gym after school
- Enjoy arts and crafts time
- Receive help with their homework
- Enrich their learning through the Y's special program activities
The Y is your place for kids to go and learn outside of school hours, and they’ll have fun learning, creating, eating, and playing with others. All of our programs focus on character development and reinforce the four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. In addition, the curriculum promotes self-confidence, respect for one another, and community-building skills. Help your kids stay in school and have fun with the After School program!

|"The YMCA after school program has been a great program for my daughter. The program has amazing people that come to the school daily. I can see that they truly care about our kids. They encourage the students to work on their assignments/homework and will help them if needed. I also appreciate that they have the students be active and play. I know that after being in a classroom all day, they need to have freedom to use all that energy. My daughter is looking forward to another year at Revive and attending the YMCA after school program." -Heather R.

As a single parent I feel completely comfortable leaving my daughter in ymca after school programs care and I know that she will be in safe hands with them. They help my daughter work on her homework and help her get a better understanding of her lesson. And she also get to get some play time in." -Tanissha L.
|"I really have so much to say about this program, Mr. Lemond accepted my child into the program knowing that he have behavior issues, and he created a great bond with my son which was very helpful, I wish that Lemond would be at Revive all day full time because he would be a great leader at Revive, the aftercare program allowed me to keep my job due to me getting off at 5 everyday, they are very nice, professional, and helped him everyday with his homework, and even worked with him on getting him to do better in school, no one understood him but Mr. Lemond does all he can to help us with our son, I have recommended this program to many of my friends that children attend Revive, I hope that they will have the program for this upcoming school year, thanks for all that they do with my child and the other children!" -LT G.
|"I would recommend the YMCA after school program to anyone planning on attending Revive. It is a reliable and fun program that is available for the students at Revive. I am so thankful for an after school program that I can rely on and trust to care for my daughter." -Heather T.
