The YMCA of Greater Houston is committed to serving families and students during these uncertain times; even when families are engaging in virtual education. We are excited to announce that we have developed the Y Learning Center, a safe and structured environment that will allow for students to attend virtual classes, benefit from peer interaction, and participate in engaging enrichment activities, while parents return to work.
The Y Learning Center provides a structured schedule to ensure that students are able to stay focused and on-task while engaging in virtual learning, and also receive onsite academic support in a small group setting. The YMCA will work directly with campus teachers as well as parents to ensure each child’s success.
Y Learning Center hours are 8 am–3 pm, similar to normal school hours. Space will be provided for students to participate in synchronous and asynchronous virtual learning, with counselors available to provide assistance. A certified teacher will also be hired to provide instructional support, as needed, to ensure achievement. The YMCA will provide experienced and trained counselors, maintaining a 1:9 staff-to-child ratio.
