YMCA of MARTA'S VINEYARD

The Perfect Finish to Every Day

The After School Program is a family centered program that nurtures the whole child by inspiring academic success, healthy movement, and social and emotional development. We believe our kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. It makes for confident kids today & contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
