The Washington County Family YMCA will be hosting the Before and After School Program (BASP) again this school year, and plan to have it start on Tuesday, August 5th, 2014. “We are very excited for this program this year, and look forward to offering a new and improved format,” said Rosie Morehous, Youth First Director of the Washington County Family YMCA. “This year, we will have a lot of fun, hands on activities to build character, team work skills, and other important life skills that help our youth succeed inside and out of the classroom!”
In the previous year, BASP was very fortunate to have a grant from the Salem Community School's 21st CCLC partnership allowing them to subsidize prices for participants. Unfortunately, the Salem Community Schools were not awarded this year, and as a result, are unable to subsidize the cost of attendance. With this revenue change, it will be necessary for the Y to raise cost to the public in order to maintain the program.
