After School Programs

Y-Achievers: Y-Achievers is an after school program for middle school students with a focus on homework assistance and academic skill building. We provide an environment for learning and studying in which students of all skills and abilities can thrive. Y-Achievers staff and tutors provide assistance with homework and ensure students understand concepts. Staff actively monitor students’ academic progress by utilizing the Aeries online grade book and through strong relationships with AMS teachers and administrators. In addition, staff teach important study skills, including time management and organization. Snack and social time are provided daily. For more information please contact Sebastian de la Rosa, Teen Coordinator P 525-1130 E sdelarosa@ymca-cba.org.

Teen Center: Join us after school, at Teens@842 (842 Masonic Ave. Albany) for homework support, socializing, and fun indoor and outdoor activities. Directed and supervised by Carolina Perez and City of Albany staff. Any questions? Feel free to call the Center at (510) 525-0576.
