Academics. Care. Help. Inspire. Educate. Value. Elevate.

During these challenging times when your regular routine seems to change on a daily basis, one thing remains the same: your child needs a safe, enriching place to go during the school day.

While the school year may look different than before, our A.C.H.I.E.V.E. Program will be a familiar place where children can be safe, active, learning and engaged during their virtual school time. As an organization dedicated to youth development, we know how important it is for a child to have an enriching place for learning and growth, both in and out of school.

The Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA is happy to be able to provide that place, allowing your child’s social, emotional, physical and academic journey to continue all day long.
