The YMCA, known for its solid, affordable, family-based recreation programs, offers afterschool activities, sports, and summer camps. Its Hoops program is a basketball league for middle and high-schoolers; it has a Young Women's Club and Young Men's Club which organizes sports and recreational oportunities for middle-schoolers; and it collaborates with several organizations to offer the same for kids around town. The free after-school program includes recreational activities and one-on-one tutoring by trained volunteers. The students are registered through the teachers at Bessie Carmichael Elementary School.
