Bus transportation is provided for students from school and brings them directly to the YMCA each day.


The Y-Pass staff is well-qualified and fun. We balance a safe and enriching atmosphere with fun and interesting programs that middle-schoolers are excited to be part of. With a long-standing history of serving youth and as the largest provider of after-school child care in the area, parents know they can trust the Y.


Students can enjoy our state-of-the-art Wellness Center, Gym, pools, Activity Center, WiFi, special program areas and more!


Our Activity Center is a perfect place for students to focus on school work. Participants can surf the internet, get assistance with homework and work on school projects.


Statistics show that once children reach middle school age, their level of activity greatly decreases. That’s why we offer activities to keep kids up and moving. We invite Y-Pass students to participate in group exercise classes and offer interactive gaming systems. We also encourage our Y-Pass participants to explore healthy living in our Wellness Center and participate in recreational activities in our Gym and Pool.


Y-Pass staff nurtures students and provides a safe place for them to learn, develop healthy, trusting relationships and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.


Some students sit at home after school, Y Pass kids have an opportunity to socialize and be active with friends new and old. We offer a positive, supervised environment where activities bring students together.
