YMCA Before and After School Care

The East County YMCA provides before and after school care for Benchley-Weinberger students.

The YMCA Character Builders before and after school program takes pride in reaching out to the children and families in communities in which we serve by supporting and strengthening the family unit and helping children to reach their fullest potential and delivering the program in a positive YMCA environment of safety, support and care.
