Y.O.U. offers after-school and summer programs that serve over 1,000 young people each year. Our programs are offered daily at ten sites across the community: three elementary schools (Oakton, Dawes, and Washington), four middle schools (Chute, Nichols, King Lab, and Lincoln Junior High), one high school (ETHS), and two neighborhood locations (Grace Lutheran Church and Y.O.U. Nichols Youth Center).
Our after-school programs have three parts: academic enrichment, social development, and emotional support. All of our programs have individual tutoring available to help youth build their academic skills. In addition, our programs include a wide range of fun activities from field trips to community engagement that build the social and emotional skills of our youth.
