After School Program for Youth with Additional Support Needs

At the Y, we believe being healthy goes beyond being physically fit. We believe in an all-encompassing, holistic model of health and well-being that enables people to live to their full potential.

Our After School Program is for students with additional support needs, ages 13-21, whose parents require after school supports for employment purposes.

We provide a safe and non-judgmental environment in which the students are free to express themselves and participate in activities that promote social interaction. Staff are trained to foster the self-worth and independence of the students. Daily activities – planned by the students and adapted to be inclusive – include: science experiments, sports, arts/crafts, music, and many others.

Programs run during the school year, Monday-Friday from 2:45pm-6:00pm. Day camps are also offered over the Spring and Summer Breaks.
