The Irving Park YMCA After School Enrichment Program is for children ages 5-14 who need a safe and nurturing environment to learn, play and make friends after school. The program focuses on educational enrichment through physical fitness, arts, homework assistance and character development.
The YMCA staff exceeds standards required by DCFS in the state of Illinois and are trained in YMCA child care, child abuse prevention, American Red Cross CPR and First Aid. YMCA staff also go through extensive background checks. The YMCA takes every precaution to make sure our staff are educated and safe.
Our after school program is open until 6:30p Monday- Friday when school is in session.
The YMCA offers Action for Children assistance and scholarships for those that qualify. Please pick up an Action for Children packet at the YMCA’s front desk (they are filled out with the Y’s information) and submit to Action for Children as soon as possible. If you need assistance please schedule an appointment with the director, Allison Greenman, by calling 773-326-2627 or e-mailing at email@example.com.
