YMCA After School Program at School Locations

The YMCA Before & After School Enrichment program is available at 26 schools throughout Hillsborough County. The program is dedicated to nurturing child development with experienced and CPR/First Aid-certified counselors. The Tampa Y BASE staff provides a safe and healthy place for children to learn foundational skills, develop healthy and trusting relationships, and build self-reliance through the Y values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Our schedule is comprised of an open ceremony/attendance, free snack, STEAM projects, arts & crafts, study hall with homework assistance (Monday through Thursday 2:30 - 4:30pm, estimated time 40 minutes), physical fitness, centers, service learning and FUN. Learn more about the Tampa Y after school program including schedules, policies and procedures in the BASE Parent Handbook

The YMCA BASE program also offers morning (AM) child care at select locations before school begins. The morning care begins at 6:30am, and after school care is available from school dismissal until 6pm.
