After School Enrichment

The Harold Mezile North Community YMCA Youth & Teen Center is your neighborhood resource. We engage youth as leaders and nurture special interest through a variety activities including academic support. We provide a safe place to learn foundational skills and develop healthy, trusting relationships. The Harold Mezile North Community YMCA Youth & Teen Center After School Enrichment program improves social skills and lifework development of our community youth. This makes for confident kids today and contributing engaged adults tomorrow.

School Release Days

When school is out, the Y is in! The Harold Mezile Y offers a full-day recreational program for school age children available during school release days and vacation breaks.

Our program creates a safe, fun-filled environment where school age kids actively stretch their mind and body. Through age-appropriate activities, arts and crafts, group games, sports and field trips, kids learn about caring, honesty, respect and responsibility under the guidance of our YMCA staff.

Wonderful outdoor and indoor spaces at the Y give kids a wide variety of options. Intriguing daily themes guide engaging activities and give kids topics to look forward to such as cooking projects or special interest clubs. Themes and field trip schedules are available through the branch or school site.
