M.A.S.H. After School Program

All Grand Forks Public Schools now offer ENCORE on-site, so we are looking at the possibility of transportation to the YMCA for the after-school program. Watch for more information.

Grades K – 5th

As a part of the Y’s youth development focus, this program is designed to meet the educational and recreational needs of growing kids. We create safe, structured environments under the supervision of adult staff who serve as role models for your child. Children are given activity choices where they can make friends, learn, play and thrive.



Children check in. A quiet place is provided for homework, reading, drawing, coloring or table games.

Children are provided a nutritious snack, according to CACFP guidelines.

Activities incorporate a variety of activities that may include the following:

  • Math activities
  • Science activities
  • Individual and team activities
  • Arts and crafts
  • Board games
  • Large muscle activities
