The Santa Monica Family YMCA’s Afterschool Enrichment Program provides kids time to explore by combining academics with play.  The Y offers a caring and safe environment where youth can achieve, feel a sense of belonging, build friendships and explore new interests.

Activities vary daily, but afterschool at the Y always starts with a healthy snack and time for homework with free tutoring.  Enrichment includes STEM projects, sports, art, Shape for Life fitness, and plenty of adventure with rock climbing, beach days, swimming, tumbling and more! Options are available for enrolling in other Y activities, such as swim lessons.
