After School Enrichment

The Richmond District YMCA is happy to support the Argonne community  in collaborating with some amazing contractors and in house staff in order to bring quality after school enrichment classes to you! We have developed a new program for the 2019-2020 school year.

Argonne K-5 Enrichment Program

The Argonne YMCA After School Program is an on-site program serving grades K-5. The program provides academic support and enrichment opportunities for youth from the time school ends until 6:00pm. We are confident this program will allow the students to build healthy relationships and express themselves and their interests in a safe place. Below is an example of what a day in the life at Argonne YMCA will look like this school year.

Sample Daily Schedule

  • 2:40-3:00 Sign In, Snack and Community Circle
