New Bedford YMCA – After School Care

In a safe friendly environment, the New Bedford YMCA Afterschool programs provide many activities and experiences to children within our community after the school day. We provide an afterschool snack every day, which consists of healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables. Some of our many activities include arts and crafts, gym games, homework help, building, library, and curriculum. Our staff is here to help children use their imaginations, make new friends, and enjoy being a kid!

We hope you come join us at one of our three programs offered at the New Bedford YMCA, Carney Academy, and Acushnet Elementary.
