Elementary After School Program

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 related complications, we are unable to offer the Empire State After School Program in Troy City Schools for the 2020-2021 school year. We will reevaluate for the following school year.*

The Troy City School District is a recipient of the Empire State After School Grant. The grant allows for each District elementary school to host its own after school program, resulting in additional learning time for students in Grades K-5 throughout Troy. The Troy YMCA and the Troy Boys and Girls Club are partners with the District to provide these services.

The after school program offers:

  • In-program meal
  • Academic support, and mindfulness and enrichment activities
  • Transportation for Grades 2-5 (See parent letter below for details.)
