"As the nation’s leading child care program and the largest licensed school-age care provider in Washington State, the Y helps children explore their interests and talents. YMCA staff provide activities focused on academic and social growth. Children connect with others to build lasting relationships, develop a sense of belonging, and cultivate leadership skills, all under the supervision of state-licensed child care providers. This year, we serve more than 2,100 children in 7 school districts at 38 locations in Pierce and Kitsap Counties.
One in three participants in YMCA Before and After School Care receives financial assistance. The Y’s partnerships with local schools and community organizations allow us to create a higher quality experience that kids deserve. We’re able to do this work because of donors like you. No child is excluded based on ability to pay, ensuring all children have access to high quality before and after school programming.
To ensure everyone in our community has access to balanced health, the Y raises funds through our Annual Campaign. Every dollar donated goes directly to financial assistance and subsidized programs. We invite you to join us and give today."
