Education & Leadership

All kids have great potential. At the Y, we help them set and achieve their personal and educational goals. They gain confidence as they recognize the Y as a place where they belong and can feel comfortable exploring new interests and passions. Through leadership and academic enrichment programs such as mentoring, youth government and college preparation, we make sure that every child has an opportunity to envision a positive future, and to take an active role in strengthening the community.

Play Together Learn Together: Come play with us! The Y is now offering an Early Learning Readiness Program. For many families, informal family, friend, and neighbor caregivers are the most common source of child care for young children. The Early Learning Readiness Program provides a stimulating, preschool-like experience for children ages 0-5 and their caregivers, through learning centers that foster development and improve school readiness for the children, while supporting the skills and confidence of their caregivers. This program is free and all are welcome.

Children and their caregivers will:
*Engage in active play, developing physically, verbally and socially.
*Learn more about how to help your child learn and be ready for school
*Enjoy toys, books, games, resources and more!
*Meet and socialize with one another.
