The Metro Atlanta YMCA Prime Time after-school program provides a safe, supportive environment with realistic and appropriate expectations. Positive interaction & exciting enhancement programs help children build a strong foundation.
The YMCA provides experiences to develop and nurture positive self-esteem in an inclusive environment. One of the goals of the after-school program is character development. The YMCA develops character by teaching and demonstrating values. We use positive adult role models to teach the four basic values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Qualified YMCA Staff
The YMCA seeks to employ only qualified, trained and experienced staff. We also collaborate with local schools to employ teachers and para-professionals as an integral part of the staff team. Satisfactory background checks are required prior to employment for all staff. The YMCA program operates on a 1:15 staff to student ratio. Certified Teachers are recruited to assure the academic component supports the objectives and goals addressed during the school day.
Affordable Childcare Fees
& Assistance Program
Reasonable affordable fees are offered to provide an opportunity for all children to participate. The sliding fee scale is available to families making direct payments for childcare services. Slots at the various levels are contingent upon the availability of funds.
Youth Fit For Life TM
Youth Fit For Life TM is a physical activity program delivered through selected after-school sites and in YMCAs. It is an excellent way to supplement school-based physical education. The program consists of cardiovascular exercise, resistance training, nutrition education, and behavioral skills training. It teaches children confidence-building, self-management and goal-setting skills, so when they have a choice of how they spend their own time, they will choose to be more physically active.
