YMCA focused on collaboration for youth



“So, basically, we're taking both of our after school programs that we've offered before and taking the best pieces of those and creating a new program starting next school year.”

Collins expects the program to be successful because they are blending a few different funding streams. She also noted that some students will be able to be part of the program at no cost because of these funding streams. About 100 children will be served through this program, added Collins.

The children in the program will be in smaller groups taught by a number of teachers with a one to 15 or one to 20 ratio, explained Collins.
