Before/After School Program

Friends of Young Achievers and the YMCA of Greater Boston will partner in the 2018-2019 school year to offer a high quality before and after school program to benefit Young Achievers' students and families. The program will be offered on site at the Young Achievers School. This program requires parents/guardians to pay a fee; however vouchers will be accepted and scholarships/financial assistance will be available.  The goal of our program is to support children’s success in school through academic enrichment, health and wellness, and social emotional learning.
