BASE programs provide a safe environment where young people build friendships and get homework support.
The values and skills a young person develops early are vital building blocks for the quality of their adult life - This is why we use a curriculum to create a nurturing environment where children can create, challenge themselves and expand their horizons.
The Y is committed to providing excellence in all of our youth development programs, which is why we participate in the Keystone Stars Quality Initiative program. This state-wide initiative of the Office of Child Development and Early Learning takes a continuous, systemic approach to assess, improve and communicate the level of quality in early and school-age care and education programs in Pennsylvania.
