Our Values

Caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and inclusion. We reinforce the values you teach at home.

Character Development

All of our activities and discussions incorporate the four core values.

Choice Time

Kids are given activity choices where they make friends, learn, play and thrive.

Theme Weeks

Exciting themes guide each week’s activities to keep kids engaged.

Physical Activity

Fitness is vital to your child’s health so we include daily physical activity and movement through indoor gym or outdoor games.

Community Connections

Social responsibility and volunteerism are reinforced through service learning projects.

Impact After School Program

Grades: 5-8

The Y ensures that the time gap after school is filled creatively and constructively. The Visser Family YMCA’s Impact After School Program is an exciting and unique partnership between the Y, Grandville, Jenison and Hudsonville Public School systems, and corporate and foundation donors.

In our Impact After School Program, youth are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

Every day students come to a safe and engaging environment at the Y and have access to tutoring and homework assistance, health and fitness activities, mentoring, a healthy meal, and so much more. Students in our program are referred to the Y by a teacher, social worker, principal or other school official and are automatically enrolled in the nine-month program and are not charged to participate.  Free busing is provided through the school districts.
