YMCA of MARTA'S VINEYARD

Fall 2020 Youth Programs

Our Y Youth Programs for the Fall of 2020 have been adjusted to meet the need of our Island Community while moving forward during a worldwide pandemic.

We will be offering both Afterschool Program and a full day virtual learning support & supervision program called Kindness Academy. Please read through the details of our programing below and contact us with any questions.

The Y of MV is here to strengthen our community always; we hope to continue to serve our families by meeting childcare needs and keeping our kiddos safe and happy. We will provide programing to inspire 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.
