Kids & Teens

There is a lot going on at the Riverdale Y for children and teens, all year long!


The Y hosts two year-long after-school programs for children in grades K–5: Kids' Space, held five days a week at the Y, is a safe, supervised, enriching after-school place for children in grades K–5 from our local community whose parents are not at home when school ends. Homework help with a certified teacher is provided and transportation from local schools included. Y!Care is a program held at PS 24, Mondays through Thursdays. PS 24 children participate in a variety of structured group activities (including gym and playground time, and arts and crafts) under the supervision of our staff. A quiet place to work on homework is provided.
