Afterschool with the Richmond YMCA

The Richmond Y is a strong leader in Youth Development, offering programming at Argonne and Lafayette Elementary. We understand the importance of 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 a safe place to do that. We never want money to be a barrier to development, we offer scholarships for all of our program offerings.
