A brief overview of some of the FREE youth programs we offer at our Y.
As this semester comes to an end I would like to reiterate the opportunities for youth development at the Y. We are wrapping up enrollment for our high school Y Achievers program (grades 9-12) and want to get students who have an interest in the program enrolled by mid January (please see outline attached for more information on the high school Y Achievers Program at Villanova University, remember transportation is provided from Chester: Chester High, and Chester Community Hospital). All other programs will continue to have open enrollment throughout the school year.
