After School Program
Every day the Youth Center provides area kids with a safe, well-supervised place to do homework, play games, explore art activities, or simply hang out with friends. Staff and volunteers, including Williams College students, are on hand daily to mentor younger people as they work on athletic, study, and social skills. The after-school program is open to children grades 1-8. Learn more here.
Before School Program
The WYC operates a before school program from 7–8:30am each weekday. Kids join us for a light breakfast (cereal and fruit), games, homework help, and more before walking over to the elementary school.
+ Grades k-8 welcome.
+ Cost of the program is $10 per child per day.
The Youth Center opens its door from 8am-5:30pm on snow days, all-day school staff development days, and school vacations, including an eight-week summer camp.
Vacation camp days include a daily variety of indoor and outdoor play, athletics, and art activities. Our summer camp features weekly trips to area swimming spots as well as longer field trips to regional attractions.
All-day programs are supervised by Youth Center staff as well as our core of college student workers and volunteers, with additional support provided by local secondary school counselors and volunteers. Grades 1-8 welcome.
