After School Program Staff
Mitchell County After-School Program
We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve regardless of socioeconomic status or ability. That’s why, through the YMCA of Avery County local children and teens cultivate the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement. Youth development is a primary focus area of the Mission of the YMCA of Avery County.
In the Spring of 2022, the YMCA of Avery County, Mitchell County School System, and Tri-County Private School came together to apply for the Nita M. Lowrey 21st CCLC Grant Competition. The application was awarded funding in July 2022 and After-School programming began in September 2022 for students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade!
