Please Help Give Every Child a Chance

Over 46 children are currently waiting for financial assistance to attend Y Preschool where they will receive an excellent early childhood education. A quality preschool experience is proven to be perhaps the single most critical factor in a student's lifelong ability to succeed. Families who qualify for Y financial assistance live at or below the federal poverty line and need our help.

iDiscover activities in Y Before & After School Enrichment programs spark new interests.

Our new iDiscover activity series exposes children to unique experiences that, from the outside, look like good old fashioned fun; but on the inside, help children develop critical thinking skills, builds confidence and more. Whether they're "packing" up for more Adventures of the Traveling Suitcase, recreating famous pieces of art, building structures with recycled materials, or stepping back in time to the days of Motown Live, children are excited, engaged and fully absorbed in the hands-on fun!

Our program allows children to chose their favorite activities and unwind from the busy school day. Plus, homework time, healthy snacks and 30 minutes of physical activity are included every day!
