Building Brighter Futures through Afterschool Care

Y Care offers academic supervision, structured activities, and active play. We’re open from school dismissal to 6 pm at locations throughout Marion and Polk counties. 

With more than 100 years in youth development, our local Y provides a safe and engaging environment for kids to learn and grow. We work closely with parents, teachers, and the school district to help students succeed inside and outside of their classrooms.

We are committed to the safety protocols and standards set by the Oregon Health Authority, the Early Learning Division, and the CDC. The YMCA trains all staff to meet these requirements and best practices.

We also offer scholarships based on income.

To register for programs, please contact the Youth Development Director, Felicia Fisher, at (503) 399-2788 or by email.
