The YMCA offers after-school and summer programs at no cost for students grades 5-8 in the Buncombe County School system. Both programs are free of charge, thanks to grant funding from the 21st Century federal grant, United Way grants, YMCA donations, and other community grants.
Horizons provides a safe and challenging environment for middle school students at the end of the school day. The program engages students in hands-on activities that promote health, wellness, academic growth, leadership skills and confidence. Participants get healthy snacks and homework help, and participate in activities facilitated by Y staff, community partners and volunteers.
