After School

Children need a safe, positive place to go after school.

That's where the Y comes in. We're the area's most popular provider of After School programs, serving most elementary and middle schools in Wake, Durham, Johnston and Lee counties.

YMCA After School provides a wholesome environment, incredible staff and a balanced program incorporating academics, physical activity and character development.

YMCA After School is from school dismissal until 6 p.m., including early release days. We make kids and parents happy.


  • Quiet, supervised homework time
  • Creative arts

Look beyond the friendly smiles and high-fives, and you'll see a responsible group of youth counselors leading our programs.

Our After School youth counselors receive 30 hours of staff training annually, and we maintain a 1:12 staff-to-child ratio.
