Our Y’s C.A.R.E. program (YMCA's Children Afterschool Recreational & Educational Program) takes place from mid-August up until the beginning of July. It is an afterschool program aimed at supporting families and single parents by looking after their children after school.
The program runs every school-day from Monday to Friday between the hours of 12:00 – 18:30. At both of our YMCA locations, we offer children and adolescents a calm and safe environment where they can learn, socialize, have fun, and above all, be themselves.
The children and adolescents are guided and accompanied by a professional staff. Our staff
continuously follow training, both internal and external. Our five pillars: Responsibility, Respect, Caring, Honesty, and Faith are thoroughly embodied in our Y’s care program. Some of the activities in our Y’s Care programme include sports and games, arts and crafts, reading, computer classes, bible classes, homework-tutoring and much more.
Our target audience are children and adolescents between the ages of 4 – 17 years. Our Y’s Care members come from a variety of neighbourhoods, have different nationalities, backgrounds, skin color as well as different family compositions. Every kid is seen as a unique person here at the YMCA. By applying our values and norms focusing on Youth Development, Social Responsibility and Healthy Living, we contribute to the overall development of the children and adolescents of Aruba.
