“The purpose of the program is to help the parents first, but more than to get the kids involved in healthy activities, nutritious foods, a safe place to go after school until their parents can come and pick them up,” says School Age Program Director Shelly Donaldson.
“They like coming to the Y because it is the YMCA and there are different activities they can do while they're here. They have outside, they have the gym, we have the racquetball courts; we just have different activities that they can do. Pretty much most of the kids know the Y so they feel pretty welcome when they come,” Donaldson said.
