The JFK after before and after school program is run by the Thomas Menino YMCA.

Parents love YMCA After School, our family-centered program that nurtures the whole child by inspiring academic success, healthy movement and social and emotional development. Our staff of caring, trained educators are role models who lead activities that promote cooperation and character development. Parents can be productive at work knowing their children are in a safe and stimulating after school environment.
