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

Kids have a blast in the Harold Mezille Y’s full-day recreational program on school release days and school vacation breaks. It’s safe, fun, full of age-appropriate activities that stretch kids’ minds and bodies – and gives them opportunities to practice caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Kids are engaged and entertained

Each day is different – there’s a whole lot of things to do and places to go. Arts and crafts, group games, sports, indoor and outdoor play, themed projects and field trips are just some of the ways your child might spend their day.
