Free Horizons Afterschool Program

Y Horizons provides a safe and challenging environment for middle school students in an after school setting.  The program is designed to engage students in hands-on activities that promote health, wellness, academic growth, leadership skills, and confidence.  Each day youth get a snack, homework help, and participate in activities facilitated by Y staff, community partners, and volunteers.
