The Georgia Mountains YMCA offers an afterschool program at our new Child Development Center to help motivate and inspire kids to discover their potential. Our afterschool program will combine academics with play and offer a caring and safe environment where youth can achieve, feel a sense of belonging, build relationships and explore new interests.
