With the Pullman School District returning to full 5 days a week in-person instruction, the YMCA is offering offsite after school care at Gladish Community Center for students in grades K - 5.  For parents needing a safe place for their children to be while still at work, we provide a diverse program to include homework help, STEM/art actviities, physical fitness, Y readers, and a healthy afternoon snack!

Our after school program is scheduled on every school day from when school is out until 6:00 PM.  Bus transportation from the Pullman School District is provided from each elementary school to our site at Gladish. 

The program will follow Washington State Department of Health guidelines for COVID-19 to minimize the risk for our staff and youth participants.  This includes properly worn manditory face coverings for both staff and participants.

The Y Program Staff
At the Y, we believe the values and skills your child learns early on are the most vital building blocks for quality of life and their continued success. That’s why each and every Y program is staffed with people who have a background and experience in working with children and who understand the cognitive, physical and social development they need. Our staff consists of a Site Director and and Program Assistants who not only possess the knowledge but also the experience in working with children from all backgrounds and walks of life. Staff members are required to have a cleared background check, and CPR/First Aid training to ensure your child is in the best care possible. Our caring staff works hard to ensure children are not only in a safe and caring environment, but they work hard to keep them connected and supported in trying new things as well as demonstrating a caring nature and using positive reinforcement to build your child up. Most importantly, our staff help children learn how to be their best selves. At the Y we feel that makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow. To learn more about us, click here!
Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA)
Our programs align with standards initiated by YMCA of the USA for Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA), which focuses on healthy food options, physical activities, limits screen time and offers information to families about healthy lifestyle choices. Snack is provided by the Y and served in the morning and afternoon.  Please note, the Pullman School District will provide free lunch for all registered in the program who opts for it.

Financial Assistance
At the Y we believe every child, regardless of financial restraints, deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. So, the Y also offers Financial Assistance for our programs. Even if you don't qualify for DSHS or state subsidies, you may still qualify for our Financial Assistance package! Please see our Financial Assistance page for more information.

Annual Family Membership Fee
When you sign your child up for one of our programs, you're becoming part of something much deeper than a pool and more active than any gym. Your Annual Family Membership fees are applicable for the entire family across all Y programs and that membership is good for one calendar year. The Annual Family Membership fees are $50.
