The YDASH Program offers students the opportunity to experience extracurricular activities while learning new skills and building relationships in an educational environment. Along with giving middle school students a safe place to be after school, the YMCA focuses on presenting the student with an array of speakers and activities that will spark creative thinking and endless possibilities.
