Free YMCA Horizon Program

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.

Y Horizons
Horizons provides a safe and challenging environment for middle school students at the end of the school day.
