My Y Story...

Nick

My son Nick had to change schools in October due to an unexpected, traumatic family situation. As a full-time working mom, I was in need of afterschool care. The staff at Doty shared that they have the YMCA 21C program on-site. I was unsure I would be able to afford this option; however, quickly learned the program is subsidized, and Nick began attending four days per week. I was nervous and unsure if he would make friends. After a few weeks, Nick asked if he could attend all five days because he loves the program and had made many new friends. The 21C program helps my son to complete his homework, allowing us more family time together. I’m thankful that Nick can participate in enrichment activities that benefit him in more ways than just a place to go after school. Nick has also joined the 12-week “Learning with Legos” group and is thrilled for this opportunity. In one month he went from a shy and quiet child, to an outspoken and confident young man.
