FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

YMCA Learning Labs are online sessions for homework help. Each YMCA Learning Lab session is 50 minutes long and will focus on existing school assignments, such as math, social studies or ELA. The learning sessions are staffed by YMCA professional youth directors who have hands-on experience with academic assistance through YMCA After and Before School programs, Track Out Camp or Y Learning. 

Let our professional YMCA educational staff help your student with homework assignments.

Registration

The program cost is $15 per session. We anticipate adding fall sessions to the schedule soon.
