Back2School Program

YMCA\’s Back2School program is a short term alternative education program for young people who have disengaged with school. Staff work with young people to identify their individual needs and goals. Goals are set for each young person and worked towards throughout their time in the Back2School program. These goals can be related to anything in a young person\’s life that they are wanting to work on. YMCA actively communicates with the young person\’s school, parents and other relevant agencies to work towards goals and set them up on a path towards success.
