Club Curriculum at the Y
Youth experience curriculum through a variety of content areas, hands-on activities, clubs, service learning projects, and enrichment centers. YMCA curriculum is flexible and fun and children are included in the planning process.
Children engage in hands-on activities that develop critical-thinking skills, problem solving, working within a team and more. In addition, the program especially allows children in lower-income areas the opportunity to see themselves in a S.T.E.M. based career, which is growing at 1.5x faster rate than average jobs.
