Scholastic Support Youngstown YMCA


The Scholastic Support Program is designed for K–8 students to participate in their online school classes. Each classroom is staffed by YMCA Program Staff and tutors who are trained to assist your child with their remote learning and schoolwork.

Learning spaces are designed to comply with state and local guidelines for safety and social distancing. Small classes of students will be grouped in quiet rooms for study and remote learning time. Each group has a 9:1 student to staff ratio, in compliance with government guidelines. When online school/remote learning is completed, students will have time for homework, or structured, age-appropriate, academic activities, socially distant physical activities, and swimming!

Wi-Fi is provided to support video chats, streaming media and other online school demands. Each student should bring a device, headphones and appropriate school supplies. Please make sure your child knows how to log in to their school’s website and learning platforms, and how to operate their devices and software, or make sure we have instructions to help. Students should pack a water bottle and lunch. Please dress comfortably.


OH WOW! graciously provided our Central YMCA of Youngstown with STEM Science Activity Kits, for our Scholastic Support Program participants bringing entertainment, education, and a lot of fun to our youth.  In addition to the Activity Kits, the OH WOW! team delivers a great virtual learning experience that our kids absolutely love!!
