YWCA After School Program
YWCA After School Programs serve children from ages 4-12 on their school campus from the time the bell rings until their parents can pick them up at 6 pm. Participation in after-school programs have been shown to increase school performance and keeps students active, engaged, and learning from the time the bell rings until 6 pm. With programs in more than 40 elementary schools in El Paso, we are the largest provider of after-school programs in the city and strive to serve the needs of parents and students.
Curriculum and Activities
YWCA After School Programs implement a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) curriculum to help students succeed in these ever-growing fields. Students build a functioning dam, design and build a parachute, and participate in other STEM challenges and games.
YWCA After School Program participants receive homework assistance and participate in a literacy-based curriculum. Students practice reading in a fun, engaging way.
YWCA challenges and games are all designed to keep students having fun and learning after the bell rings. We also offer games and physical activities to promote health and wellness amongst our students.
All students will receive a USDA-approved snack at their after school program.
