Through a holistic approach to development, YMCA of Greensboro’s after school program provides kids #TimetoExplore by combining academics with play and offering a caring and safe environment where youth can achieve, feel a sense of belonging, build friendships and explore new interests. When kids attend after school programs at the Y, they improve their study habits and reading skills; build healthy eating and physical activity habits, gain exposure to the arts, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), global learning and more.

The YMCA of Greensboro offers after school care at the Hayes-Taylor, Spears, Ragsdale and Reidsville YMCAs. These programs are designed for elementary and middle school students, with time set aside for homework, as well as character development and life skills. And, since its the Y, we’ll have designated time for gym games and fitness programs to keep your child active!


School Pick Up Locations


The YMCA bus will transport children from the schools listed below as long as there are at least three children from that school enrolled. If registrations drop below the minimum of five children at any point in the school year, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel transportation from that school with a 30-day notice to the parents.

Benefits of our program

Youth in Y after school programs demonstrate improvement in the values, skills, attitudes and behaviors needed for success in school and life. Y programs give kids #TimetoExplore and help fill gaps in schools and communities where some recreational opportunities like art, music and physical activity offerings are limited.

ACTIVITIES INCLUDE: Homework support, healthy snack, arts and humanities, character development, sports and fitness, outdoor games, board games, fitness activities, STEM programming and weekly swimming.

We offer financial assistance for all programs at the YMCA through our Open Doors Scholarship Program.
