Argonne and Lafayette Afterschool Program K-3 Grades


The YMCA at Argonne and Lafayette is an afterschool program for K-3rd graders that believes in the importance of Youth Development. We are passionate about helping children realize their potential. At the YMCA Afterschool program, we are intentional about fostering Achievement, Relationships and Belonging. We incorporate a holistic approach to develop youth academically and emotionally. Youth have fun while engaging in enriching experiences that help them to build skills, develop strong friendships, and feel like they are part of something great.

Our staff are trained in CPR/First Aid, Child Abuse Prevention, and a series of Youth Development Modules. They meet weekly to plan programs that are creative and engaging with age appropriate learning objectives. Our ratio is 1:14 and all of our teachers are required to have at least 6 college units of Early Childhood Education. We  want to empower students to be leaders in their community. Our number one priority is to ensure that they have safe place to do that.



For the Current School Year (2017/2018) Registration must be done in house at the Richmond District YMCA located at 360 18th Ave, San Francisco CA.

For the the 2018/2019 School Year Registration will open in April 2018

We offer financial scholarships and assistance for all. We believe money should not be a barrier in youth development.

Learning Enrichment Afterschool Program (LEAP) 4-5th Grades

The Learning Enrichment Afterschool Program (LEAP) is designed to transition youth from traditional afterschool programs to complex pre-teen programming. Our goal is to provide safe and structured enrichment activities in an a-la-carte format that fits the individual interests of each youth. LEAP is two programs in one, Enrichment Classes and Study Hall. Students can sign up for one or both of the program components, depending on their interest/needs on each day. Enrollment is based on a semester long sessions and enrichment classes cater to this schedule. 

Online registration for LEAP is available by following the link on the right hand side of this page.
