Anaheim Achieves After School Program – Award Winning After School Collaboration

Did you know that 85% of high-risk behavior among youth occurs during the after school hours of 3 to 6 p.m.?  This is why YMCA after-school programs are so vital.

Thanks to Anaheim Achieves, more than 7,000 youth and teens are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices after school. They have a safe, positive and enriching place to explore their unique talents and interests, and discover their full potential. That makes for confident kids today—and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
