Our PEP program is primarily aimed at adolescents, young adults, adults, and seniors. The courses are held four times a year, taking place over the course of five weeks once a week and are given by external instructors at our YMCA locations.


The YMCA of Aruba is concerned with strengthening our community. We not only want to help children and adolescents, we want to help the whole family. Some of our PEP courses include cooking lessons, sewing lessons and computer lessons. Through our cooking lessons we help families increase their self-reliance and self-care.


We try to keep it diverse; any suggestions for courses are always more than welcome!
