Sonoma County Family YMCA

ASES Program Coordinator: Mandy Hodgdon - [email protected]

The YMCA After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program provides education and recreation opportunities in a safe, productive environment for students during non-school hours. The day consists of age appropriate activities such as educational crafts and games, dramatic play, sports, special events, and supervised homework time! Children are also served a healthy snack, which is provided by our community partners at the Redwood Food Bank. Our goal is to meet the needs of our students by offering safe, accessible and affordable programs.

Priority registration is given to families who meet one or more of the following criteria: Eligible for free or reduced meals, families experiencing homelessness, foster youth or students who have been identified as English Learners. Eligible students will receive access to the YMCA ASES program free of charge during the school year.
