Did you KNOW???

Did you know that the Staunton YMCA provides a wonderful Middle School Mentorship program? The program includes homework help, as well as partnerships with various community groups. It meets every day from 3-8 Mon through Fri and 2-7 Sat and Sun. Students may drop in and out any hours that suit your family best. So, if you prefer a few hours 2 or 3 days a week, that is fine. If you prefer all the hours that is acceptable as well. The fee is $15 per month. There is a one time $25 registration fee. For more information please contact Eddie Santiago esantaiago@saymca.org
