School is in session! Looking for a place for your child to spend after school? The YMCA’s After School Program provides a safe, fit and fun environment for children to spend their afternoons. Children have fun in guided recreation and physical challenges, do their homework, enjoy making and eating nutritious snacks, develop lasting friendships, find their creative sides with arts and crafts projects, get involved in their community with volunteer projects and develop age-appropriate skills. Our counselors model and reinforce the values of caring, responsibility, honesty, respect and faith in God. This year, we are introducing a brand new curriculum from Spark PE and are adapting our entire program to the YMCA’s Healthy Eating and Physical Activity standards (HEPA) We offer transportation from several school sites to the YMCA, call today to see if your school is within our service area.

Diabetes Prevention Program

Join a certified Lifestyle Coach for a year long program.  Participants gather in a relaxed classroom setting and work together in small groups to learn how to incorporate healthier eating and moderate physical activity into their daily lives.


The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is a community-based lifestyle improvement program for adults with prediabetes. Its purpose is to empower adults with lasting lifestyle changes that will improve their overall health and reduce their chance of developing type 2 diabetes.


Currently, diabetes affects nearly 29 million people. Another 86 million have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes, but only 11 percent are aware of it.


Research by the National Institutes of Health has shown that programs like the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program reduce the number of new cases of diabetes by 58% overall and by 71% in individuals over age 60.


Risk Assessment

Find out if you are at risk for Type 2 Diabetes by completing this simple RISK ASSESSMENT.
