Pittsfield: YMCA offers school-age programs
The Pittsfield Family YMCA is offering before and after-school programs to school-aged children at Allendale, Crosby, Egremont, Richmond Consolidated (after-school care only), and Williams elementary schools, as well as after-school programs at Herberg and Reid Middle Schools.
The Y’s before and after-school programs combine academics with play and offers a caring and safe environment for youth who would otherwise be left unsupervised.
Youth receive homework assistance, a healthy snack and fitness activities.
Financial assistance is available to those in need.
